Alright here goes:

Explain the problems associated with housing in a developing world city you have studied.
Explain the problems associated with transport in a developing world city you have studied.
Explain the problems associated with housing in a developed world city you have studied.
Explain the problems associated with transport in a developed world city you have studied.

Explain the strategies used to improve housing in a developing world city you have studied.
Explain the strategies used to improve transport in a developing world city you have studied.
Explain the strategies used to improve housing in a developed world city you have studied.
Explain the strategies used to improve transport in a developed world city you have studied.

Referring to their impact, evaluate the effectiveness of these strategies on improving housing/transport in a developed/developing city you have studied.

You’ll likely find them in pairs. For example, you could easily find a question asking for problems and solutions, or one asking for solutions and their impact.

does anyone have a list of all the possible questions that could come up for urban?

that’s perfect thank you! my teacher isn’t the best, and hasn’t made it very clear. i struggle with urban the most so will need to work on it

malaria impacts, malaria strategies, differences in development between developing countries, primary healthcare strategies, and then for the indicators it could be why using one development indicator isn't enough, how development indicators show a countries level of development with a table. hopefully the indicators don't come up but they haven't been in since 2015 and 2016 so yeah. at least everyone will be clueless so it will balance out

Hi, does anyone know anything about the 20mark mapwork question? My teacher first mentioned it after our prelim, then never mentioned it again, and since we were told we couldn't revise for it (seriously?) we have no notes for it? Thanks!

AFAIK, Just to explain the inputs, processes, storage and output. You may also have to draw a diagram too.

Not really notes, but here is how a U-shaped valley is formed:

A glacier moves down a V-shaped valley with the help of Basel slippage (ice melts at base of the glacier due to pressure) and gravity. As the glacier moves down the V-shaped valley, freeze-thaw weathering occurs (meltwater percolates into rocks at the top of the sides of the valley, freezes overnights, expands, melts and pressure is released onto the rocks, eventually shattering them) and the shattered rocks fall to the base of the valley. Plucking occurs on the walls of the valley (glacier freezes over rocks from the side wall, then as the glacier moves, it "plucks" rocks from the wall) which steepens the walls. Abrasion occurs at the base of the glacier, where the glacier scrapes the floor of the valley (with the help of some scree and till fallen due to freeze-thaw), making it flatter.

The final effect is a flat value floor and steep walls, with a misfit stream snaking its way downhill. There is also something you can mention regarding truncated spurs, however, I can't quite recall that.

I hope that helps!

Talk all about how a glacier forms and you'll get the majority of marks and then finish off with a couple steps of a U-shaped Valley. It's the easiest way to get full marks as you can get 4 marks by explaining what plucking and abrasion is.

mention glacial formation too. and for truncated spurs, the glacier cuts off interlocking spurs to form truncated spurs

Remember that you can only be credited with a maximum of 2 marks for the formation of a glacier.

i.e.


Snow falls in a north-facing hollow on a slope [1]. It then compacts into firn and neve which is granular crystalised snow [1]. This is now a glacier and it begins to flow downhill due to gravity [1].

Although being worth 3 marks, that could only be credited with 2.

Hey, in the revised higher do you only have to do either coastal OR glaciated upland conflicts? I was only taught Lulworth Cove (coastal).
Also is anyone else doing Newcastle as a developed world city and finding housing to be really confusing to do because I have no idea how I would do a problems with housing question with it
Thanks!
