    Begin by saying where all the 4 processes are happening.
    Then move onto economic and social causes of each process.
    Then I have a socio-environmental impact of traffic for all 4
    Then social impacts for urbanisation and re-urbanisation.
    Then economic impacts for counter and sub.
    Then positive economic impacts for all 4.
    Followed by a conclusion
    Can you give an example question please??

    Anyone else doing the 40 marker first?

    My plan:
    5 minute plan 60 minute writing - 40 marker
    7 marker - 10 mins
    8 marker - 12 mins
    10 marker - 15 mins
    I do the 40 marker last because then I'm more in that analytical geographer mind state

    why not sustainability for world cities??
    As suitability came up as a 40marker in June 2010, Jan 2012 and June 2013, in comparison to retail which has only come up once in June 2012 so I don't think it is due

    Something like 'Discuss the causes and effects of contemporary URBANISATION processes'

    Note- if it says Urbanisation processes it means all 4 processes, however if it says Urban processes that includes just urbanisation and re-urbanisation

    Yeah sure, even if you want to manipulate data it's useful

    It's never come up before so yes I think it is. However I think retail is more likely

    That theory question was:

    "Evaluate how plate tectonics theory helps our understanding of the distribution of seismicand volcanic events."

    So idk.. I'm hoping it is.. the involvement of a case study would be interesting, though. Explaining the theory and linking it to a case study.. if that's even possible?
    I think that it is definitely possible, especially if it concerns mitigation too. For instance, in explaining plate tectonics theory in regards to continental-oceanic destructive plate margins, you could talk about the partial melting process in subduction and how this leads to the formation of stratovolcanoes, and then link that to how countries with these volcanoes mitigate the effects, like Montserrat and the exclusion zone. That's how I would approach a question like that anyway, and do the same for each boundary and its products and their hazards.

    Erm, can't really say yes or no for that one. I got taught the London docklands and Brick Lane so don't know about Manchester.
    I got taught Manchester for redevelopment in retail and regeneration
