    My teacher guessed it could either be water or energy.... - haven't learnt technological fix yet

    I was hoping none of those would come up as was going to choose them to revise/answer... otherwise it'll be superpowers which I'm kinda dreading. Also doing life on the margins (food) for unit 4!

    Aaah awesome! There aren't many of us life on the margin students!

    The energy prediction is a bit weird, why did you teacher think it would be energy?

    I haven't learn superpowers yet :/

    Hey, also life on the margins (cannot do it at all :/)
    My teachers are thinking energy or superpowers. Maybe development because of the millennium goals finishing last year.

    Development gap is a good prediction I didn't think of that. However, im still unsure why many are predicting energy? Also did your teacher give the reasoning behind superpowers?

    Have you started your revision for Geography (or other subjects) yet? Or are you waiting for the pre-release to come out so you can begin revision then?

    Not particularly - maybe because it hasn't come up in a few years? I'm hoping for a human geography synoptic really... its my strongest area.
