    I have set up this thread for any revision material to be posted for the 2017 Unit 4 exam on tectonics.
    The year was 2014 that a similar pre-release came out, google edexcel a level geography 2014 and you'll get the mark scheme and examiners report. I'm using this to formulate a perfect response to a question on management as there's no curveballs you can throw😂It's a relatively simple area with many case studies so I'm thinking high grade boundaries

    What case studies are people using. My initial case studies were:
    The Boxing Day Tsunami and 2011 Tohoku Tsunami for Development
    Montserrat and Mauna Loa, Hawaii for capacity to cope
    2011 Haiti and 2007 Folkestone Earthquakes for Magnitude (Im from Folkestone so that's why Im writing about that one)

    (Haiti was 2010) And to add on Eyjafjallaokul 2010, Chile 2010/2015(despite being an LEDC effectively managed 2015 earthquake), New Zealand 2010/11 and Mount Ontake 2011 from the top of my head ... are those the only factors you're addressing? I'm writing up an example soon but I'll post a plan later

    I was told that its best to focus on just 3 factors in detail but theyre not the ones Im definitely going to do in the exam. I might look into the other ones to see what I could write about them.

    Oh really? My geography teacher is a senior examiner and he said at least 3 human factors and 3 physical factors to show depth of understanding and complexity. So physical -magnitude, depth of focus and type of hazard, human-preparation, governance and level of development(off the top of my head I might switch to other factors) He also said that you need to be able to show anomalies in trends your analysis should be a mix of physical and human with subconclusions

    Hiya, I'm in the same situation... I found this online and think it might be useful? What does everyone think? Willing to share ideas about this whole paper, I want to be as confident as I can be when I walk in there.

    thanks, Jack

    Be careful using Chile, as it is an OECD country so I would class it as a MEDC

    You can still argue it isn't as developed as the USA and Japan in terms of development, therefore doesn't have the same resources available

    Yes true, I can't think of a less developed country that has had a good response

    True but the OECD is not the only method used to classify countries for level of development. For example the IMF define chile as "developing" so I would personally differentiate between developed and developing countries then nics, which may be easier than LEDC V MEDC. However,the CIA fact book (where I get all my definitions as it's really reliable) class Chile as an LDC/developing country? So I don't think you can jump to calling it an developed country

    It doesn't really matter which category you put Chile in. The examiner will see plenty of scripts with Chile in both developed and developing, there isn't really a "right" answer as this is somewhat subjective (as we can see from this thread).
