    What topic do you think is going to come up?

    I think all six bar water conflicts and the tech fix have come up, right?

    I reckon we're going to have a repeat this year. As long as its not bio-diversity I'll be happy with any of them. What says you?

    I done this exam last year and biodiversity came up as the pre release so the odds of it coming up again this year is probably quite small.

    I did this in January and Energy Security came up, so it most probably won't be that.

    Problem with that is you kind of have to know everything to do it . I hate biodiversity so I'm hoping that doesn't come up so I can just forget about it!

    I'd love them to pull a fast one on us and give us energy security again!

    i did this in jan, energy security came up, however it is possible it coudl come up again

    it was VERY east as the synoptic booklet had soo much information, we hardly had to research

    once you get the pre release, make sure you try and predict the questions!

    Do we need to revise the topic in detail or is it more just studying the pre release and basic knowledge of the topic?

    From what i remember (I did unit 3 in January), it's best to know a bit of extra information about the topic but if you really learn the synoptic pre-release inside out, and try and predict the 3 questions before hand, you'll do fine!

    I don't know what is supposed to be done, but I will examine the web links provided and try and get the key information which links in to all aspects of the A level.

    Hopefully, I will post whatever info I have on here and maybe we can get this done together!
