    what kind of things would you compare them on?
    An MEDC/ oil exporting country having more of an impact on the global economy than Asian tigers for instance in terms of political and economic influence.
    Hope this helps

    Eyjafjallajokull - emergency services were prepped and ready, because they were able to monitor the volcano especially as it showed signs of eruptions before the main one. Residents sent a 30 min warning and nobody died.
    Earthquake - After Kobe 1995 earthquake in Japan they improved buildings and this led to less damage during the Tokoku earthquake in 2011.

    LEDCS which have failed - Mt Nyiragongo, looted batteries from monitoring stations, warning flags torn i.e. a lack of resources meant it was difficult to warn people, 147 people died.
    Haiti - only had one seismometre prior to 2010 earthquake, lack of monitoring and poorly structured buildings meant 230,000 died, 250,000 homes destroyed etc
    hope this helps
    Thanks this helps a lot!

    Could you do this for weather and climate please
    Hi, I don't study weather and climate and also have the geog exam on Thursday I really need to revise for 😅 It's very easy to do though, just print out the specification and highlight on it all the parts that have come up before leaving the remaining likely questions.
    Sorry I don't have time to do this for you but if I can help with the other topics I'd be very happy

    In an essay about how the PT theory has helped prepare for seismic events, would you write a lot about the pieces of evidence for the theory or not? Because surely without that we couldn't prepare

    Does anybody know how to include synopticity in 40 markers?
    Do you just refer to another subject in geog you are studying? And for how long-a sentence or a paragraph?
    Also how many pages/paragraphs do people who score well tend to write for a 40m, and does it have to be completely balanced?

    For synopticity yes try to link to other topics, but also consider changes over time and space and the role of the gov in whatever it is you are discussing. I usually try to do a couple of sentences interspersed with the whole essay.
    I've seen higher level 4 answers which are only 3 sides of A4, but i tend to do 4/5 sides (not pages!). Balance is necessary but sometimes it cant be completely eg if one side of the argument clearly has a lot more evidence to support it

    Yes of course they do, but in an essay asking to examine the economic influences of NICs, it would be wise to talk about NICs in comparison to Asian Tigers, Oil exporting countries and G8 (medc) countries.
    This is in order to suggest that although NIC influence is growing, in the present the G8 countries exert the largest degree of global influence.

    I have googled everything and I honestly don't think it will come up as a 40 marker! There is not enough to write... The only thing that could happen is if they ask about planning and managment because that incorporates suburbanisation

    Yes please!
    In addition could people suggest how they would structure and suggest case studies for

    'Countries at very low levels of economic development face issues that are beyond their capability to resolve'

    'With reference to examples, assess the degree to which the level of economic development of a country affects planning and management in urban areas'

    'Suggest how plate tectonic theory helps to mitigate the hazards of seismic and volcanic events'
