You will find it varies everywhere but considering Vision 2030 is a government project it's probably quite biased that they think the MDGs will be met
The vision 2030 has been set up because the government have noticed they will not meet the MDGs and therefore are using it as a contingency plan for the future

But good for the maths-y types out there. I think the max for a numerical test would be 10?
its hard to say since it would likely take longer then the time you should spend per mark usually. its more likely to give you a completed one and ask you to comment on it

Ah sorry no, I was thinking it would be easier to make up 4/5 shorter data response/number questions where they can more easily mark something right or wrong rather than a 3 tier 15 marker.
well they need to stick to 6 questions as it always has been.

I am pretty sure they have asked people to complete one before? However it is mostly completed and you only have to do 2-3 calculations.

yea that would make sense, and even then if you had to no idea what to do you can just follow the pattern for the ones completed

You know in item 4 it talks about the government report in 2005, and the 10-12 year plan, is this about Vision 2030 or is it unrelated??

This would be such a good question, just hard to start like the intro. I'd just talk about vision 2030 and the SDGs, then talk about how each individual MDG could be improved

Infrastructure:
- Investment in a large trunk road network to facilitate long-term development. Improves efficiency and reduces the journey times of passenger and freight movements.
- For more local transport flows e.g. to remote areas, Riders model should be used. Use a range of transport vehicles, which are more appropriate for Kenya's steep slopes and harsh rural environment

Communications:
- investment in IT and broadband. Allow healthcare system to become more efficient and responsive. Reduces wastage through oversupply in proportional distribution. HP's Early Infant Diagnosis.

Staffing
- Efficiencies from the above used to recruit more staff and improve staff retention, such as through better holiday pay and incentives.
- In short term use "rotating expat programme" to address the national shortage of specialist staff. In the long term a sustainable healthcare system needs a local workforce.
- Public sector trained workers should be forced to work in the country for at least five years.
- Decentralising recruitment of staff in rural areas so they can recruit directly. Use a range of incentives to attract.

Supples
- Focus on preventative healthcare, in particular HIV/AIDS awareness and anti-malarials. Reduces long term incidences of these diseases, reducing healthcare costs in the long term.

That is what I would do and I think that is probably sufficient for a 15 marker.

quick question on all the practise questions the mark schemes always refer to the better students adding bits extra to what the question asks, for example when the question states to talk about infrastructure affecting healthcare the mark schemes talks about social and economic problems as well, so would i do the same in the sense i would add stuff that isnt asked for but has links in order to gain top marks.

feel like some synoptic links to development/globalisation could be made here but also individual research such as the vision 2030 and the flaws of mdgs. just my own approach to the question

I agree defiantly links to 2030 and SDG, maybe you could mention the disadvantage of having the same goals for all countries and the potential benefits of vison 2030 as it is specified to improvements within kenya rather than goals for all countries to meet

Tbh many of my points are Vision 2030 schemes, but I didn't want to give too much away

In terms of synoptic links perhaps? - Aid? How important should aid be compared to trade for Kenya to develop and meet MDGs.
