Hi
I was wondering if anybody knew whether or not the structure of the exam papers has changed - the most recent one I can find is 2013 and it seems to have OPTIONS about which questions you have to answer - two choices per key theme.
Does anyone know if this is still the case? I really need to know and my teacher hasn't said anything about it...
Thank you!!!!!1

NO. there are no options this year. The reason you can't find a past paper with the new format is because there isn't one (the rule was changed last year, but they haven't released the 2014 paper yet).

There are four units: Natural Hazards, Rivers and Coasts, Population and Settlement, and Economic Development. Each year, the SDME is based on one unit. This year the SDME was on Economic Development. Every year the unit for the SDME changes. The three units left over are in the Key Themes paper - the one that's for tomorrow. Good Luck

The amount of work to do is just so OVERWHELMING. 15 or so case studies is bad as it is but of course we have to know all the content, key words and explanations for not just 1 topic but 3. Any tips on how to memorise as much as possible before the exam? I've been given a pack/booklet for each topic, but they are like 24 pages thick and there's no way I can learn an adequate amount to give me an A by 1:30pm tomorrow.

HELP :'(

for the hazards section just learn the impacts and methods for reducing impacts that are the same for all of them like "farmland destroyed so loss of income" can apply to all four hazards, you can do that for why they are more severe in LEDCs too e.g. loads of people rely on agriculture for their income

Is there some case studies you'd advise us not to revise? I mean it'd help if we could condense the case studies.
