I actually was going to answer the Energy section for the 'fun' of it, I had gotten to health and knew I'd failed already and when I was looking through past papers, Energy seemed so much easier to me and I knew most stuff from GCSE but then in the exam I thought it might not be such a good idea.
Skills.... yeh... well I do A-level maths so it should be OK just incase like standard deviation comes up but all the other stuff on coursework I will be clueless. My teacher actually banned us from doing the coursework because it was ''stupid and a waste of time'' so how I am meant to answer the questions I don't know.
What did everyone put for the tobacco question??
I haven't even heard of BAT. My teacher 'didn't have time' to go over it so I was told to watch a video by another teacher. 'Video' is a bit vague don't you think when your not given a title or link or anything :P
ETA: I meant teacher didnt have time to go over Tobacco, not BAT, or I would have heard of it
British american tobacco (: they have 52 factories in 44 countries, they produce 689 billion cigarettes a year and they are more dependent on markets with low profit margins but large numbers of people, such as china, where they're attempting to smuggle their products in order to create a want for their product while simultaneously softening up chinese officials through things such as a $300,000 donation to the reconstruction of the Haizhou bridge. They want to get in on chinese markets but 1300 billion cigarettes a year are smoked in china! etc etc.
With the 15 marker population question my class went through a past question on population change that was a bit ambiguous so we looked at the mark scheme; they said they would accept answers directed towards increasing/decreasing population and effects as well as youthful/ageing population and effects.
So hopefully the board will take into account the ambiguity of the question? My mum's my geography teacher and she said that the examiners always 'go with the student' if what the have written has interpreted the question differently but is still correct.
I'm praying this is right anyway :s ....
Hey btw guys what do you think the ums conversion could be considering the hardness of the paper and previous ones??? (if you did previous papers)
