Its natural hazards, so either tropical storms, earthquakes, volcanoes or droughts.Our teacher said that the tropical storms is the most likely topic to come up

I've got the same tomorrow! SDME is going to be something within natural hazards and my teacher has predicted either Tropical Storms or Drought but she said that tropical storm would be difficult to do a 16 mark decision on. I don't know though. They were just guesses. Anyway, to answer the original question, in terms of marks we have been taught to think logically.

4 marks = 2 Level 2 developed points or 1 very well done Level3/4 developed point.
6 marks = 3 Level 2 developed points or 2 Level 3 developed points.
8 marks = I don't know if you can enough marks for 4 Level 2 developed points, but personally for 8 marks I would do 3 Level 3 developed points.

and I am not sure about the SDME but in the Key Themes Exam, the case studies are now worth 9 marks + 3 for SPAG so 12 all together.
9 marks = 3 Level 3 developed points with facts and statistics embedded and place specific detail.

Hope this helped and good luck tomorrow everyone!
