For AQA geography, i just did my human mock yesterday. It was fine but for one question, it asked for the effectiveness of an urban planning scheme in an LIC. But on the spec, it clearly said:

An example of how urban planning is improving the quality of life for the urban poor.

And it was 9 marks (none for SPAG)!!! Wow i had to make so much up!
So i was just wondering how much detail we actually need to learn for these 'examples'

I do AQA Geography too. An example basically just means a case study. For this you need, the date of which it happened, the social, economic, and environmental benefits and issues, an overall personal opinion (usually) and a conclusion. For the effectiveness, you need to discuss the pros and cons and a conclusion along with a real-life case study of the occurrence you're talking about. Keep linking back to the question and the case study. I hope this helps you!
