Can't see any other threads for AS AQA Geog so will add to this one! Doing exactly the same topics and have analysed all questions since 2009 to identify patterns/predictions- realise not always spot on but has been useful in past years. So as a start off:

Water on land predictions: Effects of flooding 15 marker with potentially some sort of rejuvenation question.
Population- Ageing population. population structure on resource allocation , or (wide ball) population policies and sustainability.

... any thoughts?

I though there could be a youthful population 15 marker (eg. The Gambia), and for Health, I though a 'disease of affluence'. Not sure what to think really, isn't it the last year of the old specification?

Thought the same about disease of affluence for health- learning my obsesity case study thoroughly!

Know nothing about future change- but I am wanting to do geog next year.

There has been a rumour that there is a 6/10/15 mark question on rejuvenation of some sorts for rivers section. Triangular graphs are also supposed to be coming up on the Skills paper too apparently!

I heard about the triangular graphs too, they haven't been included since the start of the specification I think.

The Gambia:
Smallest African mainland country, 95% Islam
Average of 7 children per woman.
Life expectancy of 55 years.
Population estimated to double in 28 years.
Infant mortality of 37 per 1000 of the population.

93.5% dependency ratio
22% population unemployed
Schools adopted a two shift policy
One third of under 14 year olds work
Desertification of forests

NGO Futures delivers contraception subsidised by the World Health Organisation - population growth rate dropped from 4.2% to 3.0%.
Concern Universal provides development in isolated communities - helps to train midwives.
GambiaHELP improves primary education, sanitation eg. by constructing wells and providing funds for repairs.

Hey,

One of the two may be a soft v hard engineering / case study on either hard / soft.


So flood defences or costal defences. It seems reasonably likely that this will turn up.
