    True, well anyway that is the time allocation that my teacher gave us but yeah I do agree, you should take time from that and allocate it towards analyse and conclusion, however you do need to make sure you have a good plan, especially if you don't finish the entire report in time as the plan can tell the examiner how you would have continued
    have you got an example of a good plan? Really unsure on how much detail there should be in it, thanks.

    Tech Fix don't know, Development is South-North Divide, Rostow, Branlt Line etc. and Superpowers we don't need to know the theories, literally just revise the pre-release for section B

    Development gap theories:

    1. Rostow's Modernisation theory
    2. Friedmann's Core-Periphery theory
    3. Frank's Dependancy theory
    4. Wallerstein's World Systems theory
    5. Poverty theory
    6. North-South divide model.

    Theories for reducing the DG:

    1. Neo-liberalist
    2. Marxist
    3. Populist
    4. Grassroots

    I'm not learning tech fix. and for Superpowers you will mainly be using information from the pre-release. However, you will get extra marks for synoptic linking, so if you can talk about the DG theories too.

    Thank you! I am really struggling to remember the theories for reducing the development gap - I hope we don't get questioned on them specifically I do think this is unlikely however as it is so limiting

    Yeah, just focus on the three main topics/questions, which is the growth levels of China and India in reaching superpower status and the social, economic and environmental implications of both of those situations

    That came up in Jan 2013 as a 15 marker so I doubt it personally, in jan 2013 it was "assess the extent to which models and theories, such as the North-South divide and dependency theory, are useful in helping to understand the development gap"

    Look at the MS for the Jan 2013 as a question of that nature was a 15 marker and it was 'assess the extent to which models and theories, such as the North-South divide and dependency theory, are useful in helping to understand the development gap' so highly doubtful it will came up and if it does just memorise that questions MS

    Anyone doing Energy Security, what exactly is it that categorizes as a radical future approach to energy? is it adoption of non-conventional sources such as Tar Sands and Nuclear? or is it politics like Green Taxing etc. Thanks

    Was referring to energy with that... sorry for not making it clear. I swear for development it will be something to do with MDGs

    It can also be renewables as well! But the obvious ones are tar sands, nuclear and policies
