    omg i'm so screwed, i talked only about aid /:
    I did D and G too!
    Was so set on doing d&g for the essay.
    I talked about UK's intervention in Bangladesh and how effective it had been in reducing it's issues i.e illiteracy, equality of women etc
    then I questioned whether they would be able to do it independently? Could they have reached the same position without UK's help?

    Then I used NIC's as an example of countries moving forward in the continuum independently. However, without the demand for products from overseas, they would not be able to have achieved their level of economic growth currently.
    Discussed role of NGO's and corrupt gov. in LEDC's that is commonly found, NGO's use bottom up initiatives etc.
    Concluded I concur with the statement because countries at such low levels will need intervention for reasons stated and even if they wanted to, would not be able to because of how globalised and interconnected and interdependent countries are nowadays.

    I dont think many people would have answered the dandg essay, which should prove to be good for us!

    Haha I thought on my feet, likening it to a regimented seismic measurement obviously but also a measurement similar to Mercalli, looking at human elements as well (hence the confidence level of how well prepared Japan was in comparison with Italy)
    The confidence level on A MWU is how sure you are that the result didn't occur due to random chance... Normally, anything about 95% is seen as a true result.

    For the tectonics essay, I did 1) population density and population around the volcano, 2) wealth of the country allowing for hard strategies like lava blockades 3) monitoring and prediction leading to evacuation 4) weather during the eruption 5) type of hazard and volcano e.g. Pyroclastic flow.

    Wasn't sure what it meant by analyse though. Does it mean how effective certain things are at influencing the hazards posed by volcanoes were?
    I did the first 3 points and one other. I didnt know what analyse meant either

    Sorry to say but they'll probably take you best i.e. your looking at a maximum mark of 65 maybe if they see you've answered all the sections well they'll boost it up a bit.

    Thank god I don't need geography for my university offer...Didn't revise it at all, except for an hour or two this morning with some friends. Strangely I think it went ok haha, if I get a good grade I'll laugh so much!! Well, did the exact same thing for the big AS exam...few hours revision before the exam and came out with a B, 5 UMS off an A maybe it'll happen again?

    Just wondering about the tectonics question since our teachers are pretty crappy and didn't even teach us ANY stats at all, I rejected the null hypothesis and said there was a less than 5% probability the results were due to chance, so there WAS a difference between the magnitudes, is that right?

    your NIC point is awesome, wish i thought of that! sounds like you did well! i hope it works out in our favour!

    i talked about why countries are classed as LDCs, mentioned they have high growth rates due to a greater scope for economic development and drew a production possibility curve, which i came across after researching! i also talked about the balanced unbalanced growth theory and how Bangladesh is an Unbalanced country as it relies on agriculture so if that screws up, so does the country's economy.

    i then went on to talk about how they invest all their money in reducing poverty etc, but to grow economically they need to invest in education and this can be done with aid. i talked about bottoms up aid too! in burkina faso, and how it's sustainable, then i talked about aid with interest rate repayments causing a debt burden, and then talked about the IMF, World Bank, HIPCs and MDRI and how Uganda and Malawi's debts were cancelled, and Uganda had to agree to trade liberalisation and Malawi could spend more on preventing malaria and HIV/AIDS.

    when i concluded, i remphaised the above and talked about the washington consensus and how the World bank uses some of it's rules when giving loans

    i'm worried that the fact that i didn't talk about trade will ruin my chances of getting a high mark! what do you reckon i'd get (rough opinion)?

    The difficulty depends on what comes up on what section so if the whole papers pretty awkward then boundaries go down e.g. Jan - unfair for those who get taught the easiest section although they do mark them harsher e.g. tectonics essay

    the world cities essay- i spoke about urbanisation in mumbai and australia and tried to relate all the impacts to unsustainability. Some others wrote about how places in germany and uk are using waste/transport management, but just because they are urban areas doesnt mean they are related to urbanisation, or.....?
    I wrote similar stuff to you, i wrote about environmental sustainability
