    I'm looking at 56 marks to get an A overall, apparently. Fingers crosssed that shouldn't be too difficult.
    thanks for that.
    That's exactly what I'm aiming for as well but maybe a bit higher so I can drop more marks on geog4b :P

    yehhh its quite low, average mark to get an A is 56/90 which is roughly 62%, so if you think about it, it really shouldn't be that hard to get an A theoretically :P

    I personally haven't got any specific types of trade, just aid (e.g top-down aid, bottom-up etc).

    Although I don't think it'll come up on the 7, 8 or ten markers as it came up in the Jan 2013 paper.

    Please say plate tectonics theory isn't going to come up as a question, I cannot get my head around the evidence and also vulcanicity just blags my head, I hope the 25 marker is more focused on seismicity

    We learnt Touch Wood in Solihull, but that was because we did Merry Hill as our out of town centre. It's probably best if you do a city centre near to Trafford Centre, I know in the CGP it has a page about how Manchester has redeveloped, but I don't have it to hand, sorry.

    I feel really sorry for anyone who has 4 topics. We're doing three and there are enough case studies as it is!
