    I think it was about how to control rapid population growth...I used the china case study and one child policy but don't know if you've learnt this
    Yeah, i've learn it. I've now realised how i messed up, for this specific question they worded it very unspecifically IMO. Hopefully they can accept it as it was rapid and affected the population.

    Just looked in a guide. and it said migration is a cause of population change, and the migration to the UK from Poland was rapid in the population, so i hope, somehow they'll accept it, as the question didn't seem very specific.
    They're not looking for a specific case study - that's never in the mark scheme - the mark scheme tends to give suggestions of what you MAY put simply because they're textbook case studies. For example, many schools did China / Indonesia for that kind of question whereas my school did China / Kerala for that kind of question. As long as you've been able to manipulate your study to answer the question in a way that meets the criteria of a level 3 answer, while answering the question, I believe you could still get 8 marks

    The thing is i put about to cope they increased housing and skilled labour jobs were open for them also to cope added polish foods to supermarkets, i'm really not sure if that sort of stuff will get me marks for this question, that question was worded soooo damn vaguely though

    What did people put in development, for the international efforts to reduce global inequalities ?
    Debt cancellation
    Conservation swaps
    Reducing corruption
    FARM Africa
    World Trade Organistion + Quotas + Tariffs
    Patterns in world trade
    The widening gap in development due to debt traps

    Talk about stuff like that, question was 'International assistance is needed to help reduce global inequalities' - the gist of it was that it is, because most of the issues are caused by MEDCs and patterns in world trade.

    Hi made a account just to ask this

    Basically I messed up I didn't use the "Correct" Case Studies.

    I Did

    -Population change -Development Gap -Tourism

    First on the 8 marker Poulation change the question was write about the strategies for a country facing rapid growth.

    For some reason I wrote about the UK not China.I first said the UK population is rapidly increasing because of a Ageing population,Influx of EU migrants and the baby boom during the recession.

    Strategies I put were -Building Homes -Sex education -Free contraceptives

    Second mess up I did was the A Tropical tourist resort about how it can make money and stop negitive impacts.

    I wrote about Matchu Pitchu/Inca trai which is in the Andes (Peru,South America) rather than Antigua.

    Basically I said they make money from charging people to visit and they pay tour guides and Sherpas.And they prevent negotiated by limiting the amount of people,strict rules on littering,stop people climbing on the ruins and finally the close during febuary to allow vegetation and paths to recover.

    Will I still get marks like more than say 2 for each answer and will it be accepted as still valid.

    There were about 5 minutes left and I realised that I had written the wrong case study for population, so I crossed it out and asked for more paper, the invigilator said there was no point so she never gave me any paper, so I had to write underneath the extra space part where there were no lines will this be okay???

    Well damn. So I did changing urban environments, globalisation and tourism (questions 2, 5 and 6). However I ended up doing some question involving a milk jug and farmers which my friends don't remember doing. Anyone remember which question this was part of and what other questions were in the same question?

    Also what happens to my mark if I did more than 3 questions?

    I saw that question it was part of changing rural environments. I'm not sure what happens our teacher told us they marked the first three questions in the booklet, but that might have been to scare us..

    An ageing population doesn't mean an increasing population... It just means everyone's getting older... The birth rate could be 0 but we'd still have an ageing population

    Okay I did expand and say about more and more people are living longer ect so death rates are low.

    And then went on to say about the rising birth rate and baby boom=Increasing population.

    Sadly a baby boom and a higher life expectancy aren't government strategies to deal with an increasing population
