    Who got fooled and wrote about the One Child Policy for the 8 marker (Population)?
    If you are referring to the fact that the one child policy is no longer relevant then you are wrong. The policy was withdrawn in october 2015, yet it was asked about in the june 2015 paper. I am sure that it is an acceptable case study

    Whats there to get fooled for?Everyone in school did it,and my teacher said it was okay.
    "Okay" isn't the perfect answer. I suspect you will get a few marks for knowledge max 5, but not beyond that. Also teachers can only see the qeustion an hour or so after the exam, so i doubt he'd seen it straight away. And just because your school did it doesn't mean its right...

    Was Kerala an acceptable case study for the population change case study?

    I was actually exaggerating. The One Child Policy case study is allowed but I was a bit suspicious as it came up last year.

    Wait so the population would decrease because the birth rate would decrease as the need for children is less because they aren't able to work in factories or will only get a small income be one then?!?!

    Common trick with exam boards. Our teacher predicted case studies for Paper 1 (he got every case study guess right) and in Paper 2 he got them all wrong because the ones he didn't predict were used recently.

    There were about 5 minutes left and I realised that I had written the wrong case study for population, so I crossed it out and asked for more paper, the invigilator said there was no point so she never gave me any paper, so I had to write underneath the extra space part where there were no lines will this be okay???

    Does anyone know if Jamaica(mass tourism, they also have policies to reduce negative effects e.g tour guides to reduce land erosion and laws regarding coral reefs) is acceptable for the tourism case study?

    KERALA IS NOT A COUNTRY!! What don't you understand. Also, I can;t remeber the exact question but it said something along the lines of what they are CURRENTLY doing, the one child policy was abolished and theres a whole SECTION on the 2 CHILD policy in my text book, it's like 2 pages long. Also they would never repeat the case study they did last year, hence, it must be 2 child policy. If you want to convince yourselves be my guest. I'm not saying you'll get 0 you'll probs a decent mark, just not a perfect 11.

    I use the white space when I need like 1 line more but if you wrote the whole case study there i'm pretty sure they will ignore it. Your invigilator was wrong to tell you that. I'd speak with the school about it if I were you.

    No, it won't be scanned. Make a complaint to exam board, or you''ll lose 11 marks.
