    OCR B GCSE Geography: For the exam on Wednesday 8th June, you need to learn and know these case studies:

    Natural Hazards

    Climatic Hazard - two case studies - one MEDC (eg. Katrina) and LEDC (eg. cyclone Nargis)
    Tectonic Hazard - two cast studies - one MEDC (Kobe Earthquake) and LEDC (eg Haitit earthquake)

    Population & Settlement

    Managing Population - one case study (e.g. China One-Child policy)

    Internal Migration - one case study (e.g. South-east Brazil)
    International Migration - one case study (eg. Poland to UK or Mexico to USA)

    Changing retail services - one case study (eg. Bluewater)

    Urban development - one case study (e.g. Greenwich Meridian Village)

    Economic Development

    Aid project - one case study (eg. WaterAid in Mali)

    Location of Industry - one case study (eg. Pearl river Delta)

    Just to add, my teacher made us a breakdown of the things that have come up under the Natural Hazards section. As per below.

    Climatic Hazards:

    2011: Climatic hazard in an LEDC: (Explain the natural processes causing the hazard and describe its impact on people in the area.)

    2012: An example of a climatic hazard in an MEDC: (Explain the methods used to protect people and property from this climatic hazard and explain how sustainable these methods are.)

    2014: Climatic hazard in an MEDC: (Describe the climatic conditions which caused the hazard, and explain the impacts of the hazard on people in the area.)

    2015: Climatic hazard in an LEDC: (Describe the methods that were caused to reduce the impact of the climatic hazard and assess how successful these methods were.)

    Tectonic Hazard:

    2011: Tectonic hazard event in an LEDC: (Describe the effects of the hazard and explain how successful attempts have been to reduce the effects.)

    2012: Tectonic hazard even in an MEDC: (Explain the natural processes which caused the tectonic hazard event and describe how people were able to reduce the impact of the hazard.)

    2014: Tectonic hazard event in an LEDC: (Describe the impact of this hazard & Suggest why it may be difficult to prepare for this hazard in your chosen area in the future.)

    So according to this it would be in an MEDC this year if they follow this pattern.. If anyone is interested I have the breakdown of Pop & Sett as well.

    Hope this is of use.

    No worries, I feel like it could be that seeing as it has not come up in a while, not 100% sure though. I guess we won't be sure until the exam!

    This exam is actually quite enjoyable and usually easy. Definite A*. Does anyone else hate those 1 mark questions that ask what direction the photo is from? I mean, anyone can get it right, it is just a bit of a pain and takes a while...

    That's true, once I get into the flow of things I usually remember most things. I got an A* in both mocks so hopefully I can replicate that tomorrow!

    Usually there will be definitive features such as an arrangement of hills, power stations, farms, buildings etc.(on the map), and you would then look at the picture to see what comes where. it is a bit like those maths questions where you have to see what direction a picture of a 3d shape is from.

    Was the sdme for 2015 on economic development?? Maybe that's why you don't have last year's.
    Looking at that I reckon it's likely a location of industry case study will come up

    Learn key figures and facts like death toll, magnitude (If an earthquake) etc. Plus try remembering the responses to the disasters as they may ask if the response was sustainable.

    What I do is I write the key facts down on a revision card but keep them brief, like one to two sentences max in order for me to remember.
