    Yeah, the Superpowers question was incredibly specific, especially the "b" question. I thought that all the question were difficult, none of them were what I was expecting.

    considering how late i started revising went pretty well

    section B questions weren't particularly nice along with part B of superpowers, but the energy question along with part A of superpower were beauties !

    i thought Section A was not too bad (I did energy security and superpowers) - but the Maghreb questions were quite hard and difficult to be synoptic about, apart from water security i suppose.

    What was people's take on the last question?

    Politcal cross road = West (USA) or east (China) and liberlisation or cling onto social roots

    Economic = AMU yes or no. GAFAT or U for Med. Tourism/diversify economy.

    Hats off the the guy who predicted the last question due to the sign post on the resource!

    I hated that paper. The questions were nothing like I imagined they would be. I went in knowing that I would do energy and superpowers, but part (b) of superpowers was so bizarre and I put down the wrong definition of the World theory - I mixed it up with another one I knew so much but none of it could be applied to the strange questions; both on section A and B.

    When I try and download your Powerpoint presentation it just says "unknown time remaining" and won't go further than 228kb

    On firefox if that helps

    Why is this fail?
    I'm sorry I couldnt answer this question sooner! Hope your exam went well!
