    Can someone explain how you would add synoptic aspects to the tectonics essay, especially since its being asked about plate tectonic theory and seismicity.
    If it's distribution- then potential anomalies- for example construction of dams can cause earthquakes because of increased water pressures, fracking from Energy.

    Was just going to plan that now. Off the top of my head:

    Intro: Define NICs, give examples

    Economic: Discuss high levels of growth, China becoming manufacturing centre of world, India's large service sector, and general movement of lower paying jobs to these countries. Look forward by comparing to previous NICs that have developed, saying cost of labour will rise, TNCs are already moving elsewhere (e.g. Philippines, Bangladesh), and backlash over outsourcing has meant higher skilled jobs returning to original countries (Motorola, Tesla have US factories, British firms have domestic call centres). China growth has slowed from 10% to 5-7%. However, labour is also becoming more skilled so you could see other types of jobs being outsourced (India produces 2 million IT graduates a year, often as good as MEDC counterparts). China has also invested wisely into Africa, with many African countries set to develop and trade with China as a result

    Environmental: China provides 95% of the world's rare earth metals, and have been extracting them disregarding environmental concerns, until recently. India and China both refused to accept environmental responsibilities at the Doha Round of WTO talks, saying that developed nations are more easily able to deal with environmental concerns and they are still developing (This is an application of the Environmental Kuznets Curve, stating that environmental sustainability increases after reaching a certain point of development- but there is little evidence of this actually working in practise). Brazil on the other hand has attempted to become renewable, with the likes of bioethanol fuel production.

    Political: Developed nations have increasingly tried to win trade with China and India with political favours, Chinese and Indian officials have both toured Britain recently to much fanfare. Increased potential to trade with BRIC nations is supposedly an argument for leaving the EU.

    Social: I guess reduced brain drain compared to in the past, though that can be countered by increased educational standards and demand for most educated labour from abroad (I don't know the figures on this)


    Conclusion: growth of NICS has had massive impacts economically, environmentally, and politically, on developed and developing nations.



    I don't know how good that is, any suggestions?
    It's only a 10 marker.... Look at the mark scheme of the last time it was asked it's a lot more simple then what you have put... But it's still good!!

    Can't it come up as a 40 marker? I'm doing D&G as my 40, so if anyone has any predictions for that, that would be appreciated

    Add some quote from some geographer or academic. You could probably make it up if you wanted.

    Lol, just analyse something in a different way to what they expect, i.e. use information from another subject or your own knowledge rather than geography for one of your points (or to evaluate a point).

    I got credited with flair for saying fish farming could be unsustainable due to dominance of specific species and thus reduced biodiversity, yet that's basically under ecosystems
