more or less yes, but i'd definitely do every single question for both papers in existance
does anyone know what the nine markers were last year? I think its unlikely to be those this year.
Anyone have any thoughts about what will come up on Friday?

How did people find the 9+3 marker on the UK city?
We did Bristol, did people but social or economic opportunities as more important?

I did Birmingham.

Talked about Ramadan and the hippodrome and how both create social AND economic opportunities. At the end i says the economic opportunities of urban change in Birmingham were more signifcant
