    for the economic effects of global warming on Africa without referring to agriculture I did 2 points. 1) drought leads to desertification meaning the land isn't suitable to develop on e.g. in the sahel region and 2) global warming will cause rising sea levels - coastal areas in africa may suffer from flooding, which will damage buildings and infrastructure e.g. cape town
    anyone do anything similar? my teacher said it will get good marks

    For the three features of an ethical product I wrote 1) Using less packaging or more made of recyclable materials 2) Using organic production processes through a lack of fertilisers and pesticides etc. and 3) Using less plastics which would have to be disposed in landfill sites.

    What was the second part of that question?

    I was really hoping for a Philippines question
    Same, the only reference I made to Philippines was in question part A. But it wasn't really disaster hotspot question

    I mentioned the grey pound. I think you answered the question. Impacts/Cost Benefits are the same thing. Right?

    I was unsure when it meant by contrasting

    how i did it was
    Poland to UK (workers)
    Costs to the UK
    Benefits to the UK
    Uk to Spain (tourists)
    Costs to spain
    Benefits

    im worried i did the wrong thing i didnt contrast anything specifcally

    I hated the wording of the question. I always made sure I wrote something like "Spain will gain migrants with the grey £ compared to the UK who will lose this" and then obviously develop the point. I am not sure if you needed to do this, though. Depends on the mark scheme, which can be a tad funny.

    Its already around give or take 60/90 which is pathetically low, they cant reduce it anymore because then it would be ridiculous , how can an A be less than 65%

    did the second point but for the first point how would desert prevent development? I said that there will be more pressure on healthcare because of increased malaria and cholera ( from dependance on low quality water sources) and that would put pressure on government budget

    Found this paper quite nice, managed to finish with about 10-15 minutes left... one question I wasn't sure on was how farmers in south africa may adapt to changes in rainfall and increased temperature, just talked about genetically modified crops to counteract the increase in insects due to higher temperature, and that they might plant different crops
    OMG HOW DO YOU FINISH 15 minutes early :eek::eek::eek:

    I sat the Unit 2 exam last year. I'm not doing it again but I don't think sustainability will come up in the rebranding sections - it's highly likely to ask a question about contrasting rural and urban rebranding in that section because they haven't asked that for a while - that's what I thought would come up last year.

    Good Luck
