    The question is 'Evaluate strategies used to reduce the impacts of climatic hazards' ...

    1)I can't think of that many.

    2) how do you write a conclusion for it? do you just evaluate them as you go, so you don't have to write an evaluation/conclusion at the end?
    there is many that you could do for each climatic hazard the hazards include - heatwaves,blizzards,tornadoes,hu rricanes,depressions,wildfires,a nticyclones and all the strategies to reduce the impact of each hazard although in the essay i would probably mention 3 or 4 hazards.

    in conclude the essay you would clearly state which side of the argument you are going to choose, if the strategies used to reduce the impact have been successful or not and say which strategies have been most effective.

    This is exam is making me so depressed.. I'm on 168 UMS (Mid A) from AS but there is no way Im going to get enough for an A this year . My teachers have been awful, we've only learned 3 sections and from looking at past papers they can ask you pretty much anything most of which isn't in the book for the 10 markers especially on ecosystems and development and inequalities

    you could use italy with the south in sicilly were migrating to the north,
    poland to the uk migration due to the eu
    China Rural to urban - due to the fast growing economy
    you could also do the UK people from the north migrating to the south (london) due to more job opptunties
    thanks is there anything specifically more i can say about italy or the uk internal migration apart from job opps?

    We've done hazards, ecosystems and development and inequalities but I've effectively written off doing an ecosystems 30 marker already. Hazards is probably my strongest area as I know lots of specific case studies for all of the hazards

    you could talk about living standards and quality of life, better entertainment and more firms are located where they migrate too, also in Italy you could talk about how agriculture has declined and people have migrated to find jobs in the secondary and tertiary sector but job opportunities is the main reason for the migration

    My class only learnt three topics - earth, climatic, globalisation.

    The annoying thing is, the two environmental topics are my strongest out of the three. But that means for the essay questions I have 4 questions to pick from the topics I find easy but only a choice of 2 from the topic I find harder.

    Me and one other person in my class do chemistry. My geography teacher said that if there's ever a chemical equation we know/can work out that's relevant to the question, that we could get an extra mark for showing greater knowledge/understanding of the topic.

    Is this likely ?

    I can only think of a couple though. How sulfuric and nitric acid form from pollutants and then precipitate as acid rain, which I checked with my chemistry teacher. And how some carbonate rocks are dissolved by acid. The geography textbook was a bit vague so that didn't help. it said - ammonia, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides mix with water droplets in the atmosphere to form nitric acid and sulfuric acid.

    We didn't do either paper in January. My teachers really unorganisaed so we'd been on a 1 day field trip before the january exams. So we would probably have struggled to do the skills paper in january. And obviously there's not enough time to learn the stuff for global issues, before janaury, so that's not an option either.

    We went on the field trip in October of year 12 so it was ages until we did the skills stuff. But then we did skills from the beginning of November (last year) till when the exam was. So boring... Haha!

    I'm just wanting the global issues paper to be done already. So much too learn. The case studies are a pain and the fact they want synoptic elements is annoying. Hopefully the essay questions are nice.

    The timing for this exam is going to make me stress and my writing may end up resembling so sort of scribble. I hope the examiners can understand
