Does anybody have any predictions for this paper?
How are you finding revision?
I am doing the following sections:
The Development Gap
For Tourism, I have predicted the mass tourism case study but I want to see anybody else's predictions.
I'm still revising everything but in the last hour/minutes before the exam, I would focus on these topics.
Also - for after the exam - how did everyone find the exam?! Easy? Hard? Time management not so good? Feel free to leave a comment.
Just for reassurance - for the physical geography exam - on average you only need 49/75 marks on average (based on A* grade boundaries for the past 5 years) to get an A*. This means you can lose 26 MARKS and still get an A*! So even if you missed out all the 8 markers or missed a whole question out, you can still get an A*. So don't stress. If this thread is going to stress you out, don't read it!!
yes ld love some predictions for this too! how did yiu find the physical exam?
Has anyone got any predictions for :
Changing Urban Environments
I'm also doing
The development gap.
The physical exam didn't go to well but I'm hoping this will go better and my course work will help counteract my little mess up in the physical paper 😂How was it for you?
I think mass tourism is a good prediction but I'm not sure about the other topics.
Urban environments - air pollution, water pollution, waste management - that section (possibly 8 marks, likely 6)
Globalisation - something on local industrial regions with global connections (like Motorsport Valley etc.)
Tourism - mass tourism strategies? or maybe why people are attracted to areas in the tropics?
my geography teacher made a 'hot list' of likely topics for both papers, and he was pretty spot on with the physical so I feel pretty happy focusing mainly on what he's put (of course still revising everything in the 3 topics). But he thinks the most likely things will be:
Population: factors affecting population growth; social/economic/political issues with population change; non-birth control policies; migration
development: comparing/contrasting measures of development; classifying parts of the world; political/environmental influences of global inequalities; world trade and imbalances within it; development project case study; EU attempts at reducing development differences
Tourism: contribution of tourism to UK economy; impacts of external factors on visitor numbers to the UK; National Park case study; mass tourism case study; extreme tourism attractions/impacts.
Obviously it's a pretty wide range of topics but That's basically what I'd focus on.
Guys, my humanities teacher has been predicting correct topics for last 2 years, she also predicted all the topics for the 2016 Geography AQA UNIT 1 (Physical) exam. The sections we learn for the exams are;
Population Change, Changing Urban environments and Tourism.
Okay so here are the predicted topics for tomorrow:
DTM model with population pyramid
Coping with ageing population and encouraging more births
Migration push and pull factors and impacts on host and origin countries
Economic migrants within the EU
Refugee movements and impacts
Changing Urban Environments
Causes of urbanisation
Issues and solutions in CBD, inner city, suburbs and rural-urban fringe
Squatter settlement redevelopment
Effects and management of rapid urbanisation - disposal of waste, air pollution and water pollution
Sustainable urban living
Tourist resort life cycle model
External factors effect on UK tourism
Mass tourism positive and negative effects and management
Extreme environments impacts and growth
Benefits of ecotourism and link to sustainable development.
ONLY YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR REVISION, NO ONE IS TO BLAME IF THESE TOPICS DO NOT COME UP.
If I got a C on coursework and 2 A's in the exams what would that sum to overall??
People doing population change, have you all done a case study on transmigration because our teacher hasn't taught us about it?? KINDA FREAKING OUT NOW...
