    Nah, they would never let you take your own booklet into the exam, I think that would be a little too easy to cheat? haha

    And im sure they would have a spare anyway
    All previous years at my school have had to take their own in...last year someone forgot and had to do the whole exam without a booklet as they did't provide extra's. However it might be different from school to school.

    I dont know how i would answer this but i know what id say about mangroves.
    For Mangrove's :
    - protects from storm surge
    - protects the chars from erosion
    - are biodegradeable
    - are the habitat for a number of species, not to mantion the endagered bengal tiger

    Against Mangroves :
    - farmers need the land
    - farmers need the flood water for rice paddies
    - the mangroves can be used for fuel or materials to build flood shelters and rasied houses

    If i got this question i would state my hypothesis (Socioeconomic - cultivation of mangrove swamps will benefit the people or Environmental - cultivation of the mangrove swamps will not benefit the environment) and elaborate on them
    Probably ask the people who will be effected (questionaires, interviews, etc)
    Pros and cons
    what else...

    horrid question!

    Also think of the cost involved for all the mangrove! Would it be most economically friendly to let the land flood or build the defences all along the coast line....

    make your mind up guys, i dont know whether i should patch up my booklet or not...i mean looking at it right now, theres no way i will be able to effectively clear it up. The only way i can think of is by cutting pieces of paper and sticking it on the booklet in places, god im screwed.

    This might sound stupid but is it a black and white copy or the real thing? If I was you I would just take it with me anyway, maybe not wave it around so not many people saw, and hope for the best haha

    I got a coloured version last time to use for notes and then there was a fresh one on the table during the exam.

    If your school hasn't made clear to you that your not supposed to write on it, then I'm sure it'll be fine.

    We have to take in the booklet we were originally given. Our teacher said there won't be any spares in the exam room. Best thing is either to check if exams office have a copy or get a friend to photocopy their clean one for you in the morning. Good luck
