    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!

    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,

    Is there any predictions for Rivers 15 marker. Energy 15 marker and Coasts 15 marker?
    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.
