    Just wondering if anyone has any predictions for what the 7/8/10 mark questions might be on in the Globalisation and Development topic? I'm set on doing a Plate Tectonics essay, because that's the only topic I really enjoyed at A2. I was also taught Ecosystems and World Cities, but the latter is such a ***** of a topic I'm just not going to revise it at all.
    Same but I'm defo doing ecosystems.
    G+D -
    - Trade v aid possibly although types of aid came up in Jan so
    - Impacts of new markets ad tech
    - TNC enviro impacts (+social and economic because just that would be a bit dry) as well as impacts to specifically host/home,
    - LDCs
    - Measuring development
    - Development continuum + N/S divide
    - Growth of NICs
    - Impact of TNCs on global economy

    overall I'm leaning towards trade v aid or development being one (although I hope not I find it a bit dry) although they might surprise and put something that's come up before.
    What are your ideal question to come up?

    For the globalisation and development topic do you think they could ask anything other than characteristics and issues for LDCs and also what does this entail??
    could they ask to critically analyse development? or measuring development?

    Not particularly, I'm writing it up at the moment, I guess you could link it to sustainability or maybe something to do with Mexico City for example, developing countries wanting to use cars now as the country as a whole becomes more affluent, and this results in a lot of greenhouse gas emissions, you could also look at cities such as Manila or Chongquing and their pollution problems and maybe compare them to MEDCs or sustainable cities such as Curitiba in Brazil. Bristol (where I live) plans to put in a Light Transit Rail system to alleviate these congestion problems, and MEDCs are tending toward public transport, and as I said before, developing countries want to use cars as the western world did during the 70s - 90s.

    Anyone else think of anything?
    Oh thanks I like that point about developing countries wanting to become more westernised!! I'm comparing Rio de Janeiro and London

    Hi guys, I need 78 out of 120 UMS to get a B overall. Does anybody know roughly how many raw marks this is?
    78/120 = 65% UMS ie. Mid C, so you will need around 46-49 marks out of 90 = 52-55% Raw

    I have to do tectonics! Jan 13 and Jun 12 both were about volcanicity, they won't do it for three papers in a row will they? Surely not...
    For your sake, I hope not.

    If nothing else surely you have to bring sustainability up at a point for evaluation? Or do you just not want the whole essay to be about it?

    I need a nice way to introduce a case study in a 10 mark question where you are supposed to name one case study. I tend to say "A good example of..." anyone got better ideas? thanks - Also does a conflict involving just 2 countries considered international? Please be pretty certain before answering

    'Causes of separatism are complex and convoluted....[lists causes]...In reality it is almost exclusively a combination of these factors. An illustration of this is the separatist movement in the Basque region of Northwest Spain and Southeast France' blah blah blah

    If it involves more than one, it is international, 100%.

    if you had a 40 marker on LDCs, how would you structure it? general problems, case study 1 (a few paragraphs), case study 2 (a few paragraphs) or: problem 1 then use evidence of this problem from both case studys (around 1 or 2 lines), then problem 2 and another line or two from the case studies etc

    thanks in advance!

    the specification states that you need only 1 case study for TNC's, but surely you need at least 2 for TNC's for it to come up in the 40 marker. my TNC ones are Walmart and Coke Cola.

    LDC, its Bangladesh and Sudan

    Sustainability is the most hardest, you need case studies from two contrasting areas in the world. In terms of tourism Australia, Morocco and Cuba
    trade vs aid, i've only got 2 LEDC's, Bangladesh and Sudan and I might do Japan as a MEDC
    economic vs enviornmental sustainability i've got Sarawak, but I need one for a developed country, any ideas? May be UK? In terms of biodiesel= high price economically unsustainable, but using biofuels as a subsistute for some of the diesel is enviornmentally sustainable? not sure on that.. but have i feeling its going to come up..

    really doubt trade/aid and social grouping will come up, i dont think NIC's will either..

    A in 4A will be 64/80 UMS
    155 + 64 = 219
    320 - 219 = 101
    101/120 = 85% = mid A
    So you will need around 62-65/90 or 69-73% Raw based on last 3 June exams
