Anyone have any predictions for this years exam (unit 3 and 4a) that you have looked at or a teachers may have said?

Sections I'm doing for unit 3 are-

Ecosystems

Cheers

Unit 3 Tectonics:

7 Marker - Random picture most likely a 'say what you see'
8 Marker - Types of volcano or intrusive/extrusive volcanic activity
10 Marker - Management of Seismic Hazards hasn't come up recently
40 Marker - Plate tectonic theory helping us understand the distribution of volcanic and seismic events

For the tectonics essay, plate tectonic theory hasn't come up since June 2012 (but has already come up twice). Technology and prediction has come up for the past 3 years.

There could even (hopefully) be something similar to June 2013's but instead of volcanoes it could be like
"Discuss the factors that cause different impact by seismic events around the world".

My teacher is insistent that you will get a higher mark on an ecosystems 40 marker as less people are doing it. It is most likely to be on either fragile ecosystems or the British isles

Im doing the exact same topics as the TC, if anyone could drop any short questions predictions for ecosystems and world cities, I would be eternally grateful - haven't a clue how to answer some of those questions in the past papers. Reading up on the Tectonics essay predictions, everyone is sure it's going to be on Plate Tectonic Theory or Earthquakes, since the double Volcanoes we've had the last two years.

Will most likely be on the conflict over the use of a local resource as that has never come up before.

For conflicts I think maybe poverty, expressions and/or resolutions
For weather and climate I think tricel model, oceanic circulation or global warming

I think minor extrusive could come up as an 8 marker and seismic management as a 10, maybe an urban process in world cities.
