Mock exam updates - Year 11

The first paper is a decision making paper where you will be expected to write at length about an urban issue. Revision of migration and the Brandt line (rich north and poor south) will be important. You will need to put thought and depth into the last question on the paper as this worth alot of marks. Make sure you write enough and justify your ideas!

The second paper is made up two sections - People and Place - revise land use, the advantages and disadvantages of tower blocks, London docklands/Westcotes in Leicester.
The second section is based on Ecosystems so you need to revise the Amazon rainforest case study together with sustainable development.

In both papers you will be expected to be able to describe graphs, photos and maps. Be Specific and make sure you answer a question in a way which will match the number of marks available. If its worth 2 marks - you probably need 2 points to your answer - it should be a minute a mark!

Any problems or concerns email:

Case study - Desertification - Sahel

Some pupils have come in asking about a possible case study solution for desertification. Desertification can be used for a case study which implies that an ecosystem has been mis-managed or how a high pressure system has affected humans and vegetation.

Desertification is the process of grassland areas turning into desert or arid areas. The Sahel is a region south of the Sahara which can be used as the case study location.

for the causes of desertification check out:,1,Slide 1

For possible solutions check out:

This outlines some of the causes and possible solutions (play the EXE files) such as the magic stones.

For more facts about the Sahel just google it eg population figures etc. Make notes off these resources and you'll be fine.

Chinese Earthquake!

Still people are being dragged from the collapsed buildings in southern China. There may yet be further problems as 391 dams in Southern China experienced some sort of damage after the quake.
If some dams were to fail then large settlements are at risk from further devastation.
Up to 50,000 people are feared to have died in the devastating earthquake that hit China's Sichuan province on Monday
For a clear outline of the effects of the quake - take a look at:
