    How's Everyone feeling for this exam? Did unit 2 last year and got a C so hoping for higher this time cos unit 3 is looking very bad + Any predictions on the first section? Population or Rivers?
    The theme was rivers last year so it's going to be population this year.

    I wish it is Human population too however there has been 7 population papers and 6 physical papers so they might want to even out the papers so it's likely going to be physical again

    Did anyone else think the population 4 marker (comment on...) and the one after on economic impacts of ageing populations (both in reference to the Figure) were essentially the same question?
    Yeah! I felt like I already answered the 4 marker before I answered the one after!

    What did everyone write for the changes in human population pie chart question and the economic implications of fertility rate questions?
    South America and Europe and Oceania - population would decrease by 1-10%
    North America - increase by a few percent
    Asia - still the most populous continent but will decrease by about 20%
    Africa - grows by 20%

    I swear the fertility question was to explain why the rates were higher not implications?

    Yeah I wrote about lack of contraceptions and lack of educations for why the rates were higher. And the fact that some cultures and religions encourage more children and women may get married at a younger age so they have more time for children?

    Correct. For Japan did anyone else talk about higher taxes to cover increasing amount of pensions, declining economydue to smaller workforce and reduced productivity, and grey pound etc.

    Also, for causes of high fertility rates, will the need for labour for subsistence farming be a viable answer?

    I did japan and concentrated on the cost of increasing pensions (possibly resulting in a higher retirement age) and job blocking (possibly resulting in lower wages on average for young workers and higher youth unemployment)

    For fertility rates i focused on the fact instability results in families wanting to have more children (for financial and social reasons) and that the causes of this could be disease, natural disasters or conflict (i also quickly mentioned lack of womens rights)

    For fertility rates talked about lack access to contraception, lack of education and the degree of emancipation of women in society.
    For Japan I talked about high demand for pensions and thus higher taxes needed to pay for this, which may reduce consumption in the economy and thus slow down economic growth. and also talked about the smaller size of the working age population also slowing down economic growth, amplified by the needs of some to come out of employment and act as unpaid careers for dependent elderly relatives.
