    Hey everyone

    I know this exam is the one where there are 6 options to choose from:
    1. Tectonic activity and hazards
    2. Cold environments: landscapes and change
    3. Life on the margins: the food supply problem
    4. The world of cultural diversity
    5. Pollution and human health risk
    6. Consuming the rural landscape: leisure and tourism


    Everyone is going to be having to find numerous case studies, for whichever option you've chosen, so I thought we could share them here
    I'm personally doing Option 1: Tectonic activity and hazards, so if anyone has case studies for that, please feel free to send them my way :P

    But yeah, sharing might make all this just a little easier

    Okay thank you, I have no teacher at the moment so I'm going to have to write my report without any guidance... extremely stressed, especially with unit 3 as well

    I haven't even started revising for this report, but when I took the paper in January I used Haiti earthquake, Boxing Day tsunami, Merapi and Hawaiian volcanoes as my case studies. They will probably depend a lot on the pre-release though

    edexcel unit 4 student guide

    Yeah Thank you so much, I'll probably come back to this thread once we know the pre-release and maybe then we could share ideas or help each other to prepare the report together or something

    Okay thanks, I will probably order it because it does look so good

    That sounds brilliant if you'd rather add me on fb I'll pm you a link to my fb?

    Yeah, I'd definitely recommend both those text books, they're by far better than any textbook I've ever used, everything is so easy to understand and laid out really well. And as my teacher is pretty crap, I've basically taught myself from those books.

    Okay sure, I don't mind whichever way

    Yeah, I've looked through the unit 3 one as my school library has it, and it's so helpful the few times I've used it. Haha same with me, it's barely worth even going to the lessons!

    What case studies are you guys planning to use? I'm completely undecided. I'm struggling on the 'varying effectiveness' part..

    I know exactly what you mean about the focus. Initially, I thought my framework would be based on scale (from local to national to international), because the pre-release material said to use a 'range' of initiatives. But, I'm unsure as to whether I should instead base my framework on effectiveness, so maybe use a range of examples, some of which have been effective and some of which haven't been particularly effective.

    What case studies have you decided on so far? I'm planning on doing some detailed research soon.

    Why is it you're struggling with the 'varying effectiveness' bit?

    Of the top of my head, the case studies that I'm thinking of using are the EU CAP scheme, Fairtrade, GM crops etc.? What case studies have you decided on so far?

    OPTION 2: Cold Environments – Landscapes and Change

    •Explore the range and nature of geomorphological processes operating in glacial environments.

    •Research a range of distinctive glacial landforms found in contrasting glacial environments.

    Is anyone doing this? It seems rather simple... perhaps too simple.
