What do you think will come up tomorrow?

I feel like in development, it might be something on the impact of economic growth on people. For climate and tectonics, i think there might be something on making prediction on future climate change and uncertainty for the future. Not really sure about urbanisation
Best of luck today everyone!
So, how did everyone do
That was unbelievably easy.

hey ! how did it go?
What was the 8 maek questions - does anyone remember?
Great exam couldn't believe the first 8 marker wasn't about volcanoes or earthquakes but overall it was a very nice paper

The topic 3 8-marker was about sustainability in bottom-up and top-down development in a named megacity in a developing or emerging country
The topic 2 8-marker was about how far an emerging or developing country's development has been impacted by its location
The topic 1 8-marker was about how far you agree with the view that human causes of climate change are more important than natural causes

Very well. Unless I messed up a simple 1/2 mark calculation through me misunderstanding it I do not see I might have gone wrong there.

For the topic 2, I messed up I think. I spoke about location and the other factors (TNCS, globalisation) that have influenced the country that I studied. But does it exclusively have to be about location

its fine, as long as you mentioned why it is and why it is not the most important factors causing the countries development.

I did the same, but instead I talked about liberalisation of the economy as a big factor but I think its fine as long as you have a conclusion

All right. I did that thankfully.

For topic 3 I wrote about unsustainable and sustainable living conditions, rather than the environment.
Would that be fine?

I also talked about the location of one of the seven wonders of the world near the megacities of my country, as well as the country's location as a whole near the UAE and China for easy trade for topic 2.
