    Reducing risk essay for earth hazards was brilliant I thought, mentioned Chile 2010 compared that to Haiti, mentioned Indian Ocean warning system how that reduced future hazards e.g aceh 2012. Mt St Helens monitored as well.

    The globalisation individual gov one was annoying as it was slightly ambiguous, I was going to mention Bolivia but did not think i'd have enough for 3 and a half pages, I talked about UK which had a bit more though less relevant. I'm not brilliant a 10 mark q but thought they were ok.

    Yeah I did. Ran out of time so only got to talk about earthquakes and mass movements, and then a tiny reference to volcanoes in the conclusion. How badly you reckon this will affect the overall grade?
    It won't affect your grade as long as you mention more than one its fine. I kinda regret doing that essay as I got half way through and had a mind blank

    Anyone else get a horrible feeling that they didn't number all the questions? If you didn't what would the examiners do? Would they just give you 0, or see what questions they were related to and mark them...

    Hopefully the examiners don't mind and find out which we were answering. Otherwise I think I've lost all my marks

    Did anyone do the earth hazards essay?
    I did the earth hazard 30 marker on reducing risk from earth hazards. I wrote about earthquakes and the way their managed though: warning systems, keeping an effective and trained response, education on how to evacuate, and the use of building earthquake proof buildings. Using japan and the USA as case studies

    I wrote about managing volcanoes though prediction as in Mount st Helens and Iceland when they used water to stop the volcanoes

    I then did management of flooding by using the Thames in London and the way floods are managed there. I also used Bangladesh using afforestation to reduce flooding risks

    I finally did mass movements and the way of reducing chances of them occurring using Venezuela and methods they used there such as buildings being parallel the land and the other methods.

    Did anyone do the question for development where it said evaluate the influence of economic factors on development?

    Hey just wondering what did you write for your climatic haazards essay
    For my intro I wrote about how dealing with the hazard is difficult in terms of money and logistics, meaning MEDCs should cope with climatic hazards better than LEDCs. I then wrote about the heatwave in France, the snow in scotland, hurricanes and tornadoes in USA and tropical storm Sidr in bangladesh and evaluated the management strategies as I went along. In my conclusion I wrote about MEDCS usually coping with climatic hazards better than MEDCs. BUT how that if a MEDC isn't used to a hazard then it struggles to cope as it often doesn't have enough resources and people aren't used to dealing with it, as in the case of Scotland as it didn't have enough snow ploughs and people didn't prepare enough as they thought it would just be a few flakes of snow as usual.

    I said about this yesterday afternoon on here. I always get paranoid at the end that I didn't write the number down, or that if I did, I wrote the wrong number.

    Were you only supposed to use one case study?

    I've just pretty sure on the 3 mark questions the most imperative thing is an LEDC/NIC and MEDC contrast; seems to be on every mark scheme at least.

    Was wondering if anyone did the "High fertility rate is still a problem" question..

    GIS is more accurate and quicker than trying to draw data overlayed on a map.


    I'm doing it, but not as a retake, we didn't do any janaury exams for geography.

    What i don't like about the skills paper is how there's a choice for the shorter questions but not the essay questions
