    For those of you that did the Population unit, what case study did you use for the 8 mark question? I wrote about Kerala, India, but a lot of people at my school either wrote about China's one child policy or France's pro-natal policy, so I'm slightly confused

    but its not extreme weather would you visit Spain if there is a 70% chance it will rain pretty much every day? that is push factors for people visiting other countries rights?
    yeah that's a good point but i think that would only be the case in countries like India where you get the monsoon season, it wouldn't apply in britain

    It was mainly Kerala, France could have been used but not China

    I used Indonesia. Problem with Kerala is that it is birth control so it's not completely relevant. Apparently, a lot of people were stumped by the question and some teacher are complaining about the wording...

    I never learned the Indonsian case study . It was the wording of the question that confused me as well; on one hand birth control was used in Kerala (i.e. contraceptives given out), but I thought that it might also be referring to China, as in their one child policy they literally control the number of births In the end I settled or Kerala as they used methods of controlling birth rate other than using contraceptives (educating women, dividing up land etc).

    Similar thing happened with me. We only learnt Indonesia and China and I was pretty sure it wasn't China so I had no option but to go for Indonesia...

    I used one of Rio's shanty towns as a case study, I can't remember what the Name of the place was now though... I did put it in the exam though... I think

    I think that Kerala would be a good case study as it says in the text book that it is a non-birth control policy. I used Indonesia, but I don't think it's sustainable :s I think the question wasn't worded that well - I think what it wanted was just NOT China, but I'm not sure.....?

    The question specified to use a "NON BIRTH CONTROL" related strategy for sustainable development in a country. If you wrote about China, you pretty much answered the question wrong from the start. At my school we were taught the One child Policy & Trans-Migration in Indonesia, with the majority of people sitting the exam in my school writing about trans-migration as a strategy.
    If you wrote about China, like my friend did (He like many others, misinterpreted the question) you'd be lucky to get even 2/8 marks unless some of your points pondered on points found in a correct case study example.

    For the changing urban environment squatter settlement question, I did improvement in Rio de Janeiro - would planting trees in order to make the area look more attractive be an environmental improvement ?

    That would sound more like a sustainable cities improvement, but then again, you could class this as a local authority scheme of improving life of people in squatter settlements, so you could get the mark for it.

    I did kerala, because they do passive population control very effectively.

    It probably won't be publicly available for a long time I'm afraid. Most exam boards refrain from putting the mark schemes for recent exams up on their websites for several months because teachers like to use summer exams as mocks for next batch of year 11s.

    How do you revise for this?! I'm really struggling to keep it in my head, especially the Physical Geography side of it. Please tell me about any helpful revision methods that keep the information in your head, including the parts that you don't find interesting.
