    I was wondering how do people intend on tackling the SDM paper for OCR B in geography tomorrow?
    What kind of writing style do you use?
    How do you add in the resources?
    Thank you!

    You don't need any intelligence for this exam you just need to be good at writing gobbledegook. Quote resources and case studies but other than that its pips. Half of the marks are essentially for quoting the resource booklet... T_T

    if you want to worry about exams, worry about History Paper 2 OCR B... that tests your raw intellect.
    Is it really needed for you to say things like that when you know nothing about me? History is the easy subject in my opinion.

    I need help on the exact same thing!
    After searching through the internet i've found:

    4 markers- include 2 points with point and an explination if no resources are supplied but if they are include data from them too, just quick facts etc

    6 markers- include 3 points with point and explination and same as above for data

    16 mark question- for the final question you should intro it with what your option means, like if you chose to build levees for flooding, what are levees etc then say what is most sustainable about your option and why.

    Then move on to the mid-section of the essay where you say why the other two options are not sustainable and how your option is more sustainable than them

    After these few paragraphs, begin to round it off by first having a paragraph on two disadvantages of your option and one advantage on the other two (eg the other option may be more socially sustainable because..)

    Finally to conclude, say why your option is more sustainable overall, so basically summarise what you have just said

    Well if you want to develop into a political machine like you do, you'd better be open to differentiation in opinions.
    Thank you I shall take that point on board, however you should also consider the fact that other people have learning problems and struggle to analyse resources.

    'Resources' is hardly an apt term for the information-oozing blunt pieces of answer that the resource booklet offers us.
    Just stop being rude they are called resources! Please if you have nothing to contribute please don't comment, people want to do well in there exams thats al!

    Well what I have found so far is that you need to read over the resource booklet really well first and ensure that you understand what it is telling you.
    I am going to use PEE point evidence explain and SEE social economical and environmental. Remember to develop your point.
    Thats all I have learn that is new so far...
