Is from british independence from 1962 ok? Also the riders only operated in kenya from the mid 1990's also i think people are placing to much emphasis on stats, this exam is more about knowledge of principle understanding of geography

For the people remembering every single fact about Kenya's entire history, I don't think you realise this paper is based on analysis and not application, you'll get more marks for explaining why than backing up whats already in the AIB

This is from a student retaking the exam, last year I had all the facts and figures under the sun for the Morpeth floods and used them in the exam, but came out with a low grade because I didn't analyse the information in the AIB enough and wasted my time talking about further research which just supported the info in the AIB.

It's a paper to show you can 'think like a geographer', not like you can remember a lot like unit 3

couldnt agree more!!! its more about theoretical understanding of geographical issues, facts and figures can add a bit of spice to an answer and be used a few times but the interpretation is key

Can anyone else not access the Riders for Health website?
Has anyone got a list of things they do from the 'what we do' section of their website?

you get given a complete AIB in the exam, that you get when you sit down so there are no notes on it

Chi Squared must be examined this year because it has never come up before and they need to cover the entire specification before the spec changes, so it will 100% come up in this paper because it wasn't in this year's Geog 3

isn't chi-squared to find whether something is down to chance or because of a variable? the only thing I can think of them using for a question is whether riders have improved health care or if it is just by chance, which seems very unlikely

Yeah i think the chi squared test is unlikely as there is no predicted outcome in the AIB to compare the actual results with and calculate the degree of freedom

Yeah you are correct, but i think they could possibly ask about it in relation to the maps, to show the links between two of them or something, but i think it is very unlikely that any statistical tests will come up, they mainly put those in the 4a unit.

Nothing as per say - other than make sure your exam code is GEO4BR rather than Geo4b
