Hello

I could find a thread for this exam tomorrow, so thought I'd make one!

How is everyone feeling for this?
For me, its a lot of case studies to learn

Revision tips or predictions?

You guys should check the examiner reports for recent exams. You only ever need studies for the essay and 9 markers so why you got like 25 lol

Past 25 Markers:

Jan 13 -> energy: problems created by exploitation, tourism: sustainability
Jun 12 -> energy: sustainability, tourism: sustainability
Jan 12 -> energy: opportunities for economic development, tourism: opportunities for economic development
June 11 -> energy: two energy mixes, tourism: importance of tourism in two countries

I'm predicting a sustainability 25 marker for energy and issues of tourism.

What would you say are social factors affecting land uses?
- My teacher says social and economic are really closely linked, but if a question specifically says social, would it be things like, crime of an area, facilities nearby, I would say wealth of the area, but that's crossing into economic..

Access to services are also social I think. Think of the IMD

Segregation - ethnic groups are usually segregated. The more different they are, in comparison the the majority of the population, the more segregated. Segregation can be due to desire to share culture, e.g. food services, religious buildings or defence from prejudice/racism. This leads to the formation of ghettos.

Life Cycle - people move through a life cycle, in terms of residential use, due to changes in income and age. Young adults tend to live closer to the CBD in small apartments, due to more job opportunities and the fact that they don't need much space. Elderly people tend to migrate away from urban areas.

They have only once done energy mixes so my bet is on 2 contrasting areas for that for the Energy- I HATED THE OTHER EXAM AND GOD I HOPE THIS ONE ISNT LIKE IT! Good luck everyone

We did Uk and India, how they usage has changed and why- i.e gas in uk at 47% due to 1970's 'dash for gas' as found in the North Sea meaning domestic supply so much cheeper/acessable and good alternative. Where as India high usage of Coal as they are a NIC and therefore hugh manufactoring

(get the gist)

Went alright for the most part. I think I messed up the rural question by talking about Kibera, Nairobi. I also talked about Imlil and wensleydale so can anyone give me a rough estimate of how much marks can be expected to lose?
