    Characteristics are basically push/pull factors why people move out an area and why they choose to move into another area e.g city to rural area. Effects are what happens as a result of the movement e.g increased traffic and pollution in rural areas due to counter urbanisation. Use case studies to show what the effects are to get better marks, they want you to state the effects on the area the people are moving into e.g effects on rural areas when discussing counter urbanisation.
    I understand that, but where would you place 'the emergence of edge cities' in a suburbanization answer. Under effects or characteristics? Do edge cities encourage people to move to suburban areas, or do they emerge as a result?

    Ooh apologies, I'd say its both. As people move into the outskirts the increase in population will cause these settlements on the outskirts to grow in size so that suggests its an effect. People may also be attracted to such settlements on the outskirts due to pull factors (characteristics) e.g better quality of life.

    You've still got a bit of time left don't worry to start with.

    What units are you doing for physical geography? I can only really suggest a structure for plate tectonics and weather and climate.

    HI GUYS!
    ( sorry, just making sure I caught your attention! I have made a spreadsheet of past topics for World Cities, similar to the one before!
    NB - please don't just take my word for it, I have no clue what might come up or not, please learn everything anyway, this is just to show up areas that have/haven't come up!
    Oh and see post 2020, I really could do with some feedback on my practice question!


    (I hope the edexcel file works, cause the pdf version is really annoying to read!)
    Very kind of you! Edexcel?

    Just shows how hard it is to predict. I'm backing urbanisation for the essay.

    Id just learn the three, your case study will either be on plate tectonics or ecosystems in that case. Can focus on learning the content precisely from the three sections you know fairly well then, learning stuff this close to the exam will be a stretch.
    Okay, thanks, I'll just read over the Development and Globalisation section once, just in case the World Cities section is absolutely dreadful! I know I should've started revising a lot earlier, but that's just what happened and I know it's my fault. Although I do feel like I've done a lot more than last year (did absolutely nothing last year and just scraped an A!), but this exam seems a LOT harder

    Hi Guys,

    I really need to get hold of the Jan 2013 paper for unit 3 how do I do this?

    Also how is the 40 marker question MARKED and to what CRITERIA i need help on this.


    Also I need to know what topics are likely to come up on plate tectonics, World cities and development
    The question paper;http://www.turnford.herts.sch.uk/use...3-QP-Jan13.pdf

    For likely questions for tectonics short answers maybe seismic, for development NICs, LDCs, Sustainable tourism. But to be fair anything could come up.

    Hope that helps

    I still think it was a mistake or something (I honestly thought I'd failed completely!), and then I saw the A and was like whaaa??? :eek:

    Yeah, sooo many case studies I feel like it's not humanly possible to learn them all! And I don't even want to think about the essay...

    Ight here goes to the best of my ability.

    Case Studies - plate tectonics:

    Introduction:

    - Where it took place, what type of plate margin/plates involved.
    - Time/date (important for temporal and seasonal variation in essays)
    - Main hazards associated with the volcanic eruption or earthquake.
    - For earthquakes depths of focus, magnitude etc.

    Impacts:

    - Economic
    - Social
    - Environmental

    Id honestly right down the key numbers for all the impacts for each case study then practice writing out the points associated with them.

    Management:

    - Prediction
    - Planning
    - Actual responses


    Weather and climate you've only really got tropical storms and uk storms as the car studies.

    Formation:

    - Location
    - Strength of storm
    - Storm characteristics

    Impacts the same again economic, social, environmental.

    Then responses again, and also evaluation of the responses how effective they were.

    Apologies if I went off on one :l
