Its hard to predict because there are so many possibilities but maybe managing population change(One Child Policy and France's "Code de Famille" for population. Also for rivers, impacts/causes of river flooding in two contrasting areas of the world?(Bangladesh 2007 and Carlisle 2005)

I have a feeling that for health, a case study on infectious diseases will come up

I hope that for Health a TNC question comes up. For Population I would love a theories on population (eg. Boserup, Malthus, or the Club of Rome)? What do you think?

Like in a really simple way?

Malthus' theory states that pop. increases at a geometric rate (1,2,4,8...) while resources (food etc.) increase at an arithmetic rate (1,2,3,4...) - so when pop. exceeds resources there will be a ''Malthusian Catastrophe'' (a major catastrophe). The evidence for this is that the world's pop. is at around 7.4 billion; however, while there are local famines, none were global, and Malthus' theory does not take into account scientific research and breakthroughs, (Friedrich Engels says that).

Boserup on the other hand is optimistic, saying that resources will not fall due to things like agricultural intensification, providing food for the population (which is increasing). The evidence for this is GMO crops (which 'help' to increase crop yields and reduce plagues). However, Boserup's theory is in a ''closed society'' s does not take things into account like migration which may affect resources.

my geography teacher has predicted youthful for population and malnutrition or obesity for health.
the physical topics are hard to predict as they are so varied.

I didn't know they could ask us specifically about Malthus and Boserup in a question because it isn't mentioned on the specification ,although its in the textbook, but I reckon there could be a question where we could use these theories to support your answer.
