    How is everyone doing for Unit 3 section A and B revision?
    I was doing great - I'd decided my topics and gone over everything in the textbooks, found my own examples...felt really ready. Then I went and got tonsillitis last week after C2 Maths! So now just praying it goes away soon because I can't focus on anything atm teachers told me I burned out and so I've been ordered to do nothing, with little more than a week to go it's killing me haha.

    How about yours? Hope everyone's is going well

    How is everyone doing for timing? I am okay with section A but am always short for time for section B.

    Its the same thing for unit 4, I am very worried about timing. Every practice paper i've done i've run out of time :eek:. What is your timing strategy?

    Oh man that sucks! I'm sure it'll turn out fine for you. I have about 1/3 left to learn for water conflicts and one part for energy (hate key players!) and still need to do some more work for pre release as ive ignored it a bit recently...whooooops! Getting the hang of the essays but like everyone else, timing is an issue!

    These are the timing suggested by my teacher and I just stick to them, no matter what, if I don't finish I just move on to next question
    Section A:
    10 marker - 16 minutes
    15 marker - 24 minutes
    Section B:12 marker - 21 minutes
    16 marker -28 minutes
    Unit 4:
    Plan - 7 minutes
    Introduction - 18 minutes
    Methods Table - 5 minutes
    Analysis and sub-conclusion - 45 minutes
    Conclusion - 10 minutes
    Hope that helps

    What do you mean, the introduction is a large part, you have to do all necessary definitions, provide the focus of the report and give the framework and justification of the case studies you will be using, its a big section, I'm do about 2 pages roughly for the introduction which is like a 15 marker in effect and so far I'm only getting 8/10 so even then I'm not doing enoug

    Is there anything in particular I should go over for the superpowers section, I was ill and missed most of the superpower lessons so I'm not sure if it is worth trying to learn everything especially as the synoptic has been given.

    For unit 4, do you need a separate bibliography section at the end or can you just credit your sources throughout?

    I think that section b may be along the lines of:

    1) Assess the extent to which China and India have the potential to become global superpowers
    2) I'm not sure, something relating to development and political systems
    3) Discuss the economic and environmental impacts of the rise of China and India as emerging superpowers

    I think the third question will focus on the futures of the superpower world (Which country, out of China and India, has the most potential to become a superpower).

    The questions usually follow the order of the figures.

    I think there could definitely be a question on the environmental impacts of the rise of China and India.

    I doubt there will be a sole question on the economic impacts.
