Week 10

The Final Countdown is here to help you prepare for your final AQA GCSE geography exam. Following our weekly exercises will prepare you to take on the examiner.


This week you will revise a case study of a LIC/NEE LICs experiencing rapid economic development, leading to significant social, environmental and cultural change. If you have studied India or Nigeria, we have online resources to support you. For your case study, you need to revise the following:

  • the location and importance of the country, regionally and globally
  • the wider political, social, cultural and environmental context within which the country is placed
  • the changing industrial structure. The balance between different sectors of the economy. How manufacturing industry can stimulate economic development
  • the role of transnational corporations (TNCs) in relation to industrial development. Advantages and disadvantages of TNC(s) to the host country
  • the changing political and trading relationships with the wider world
  • international aid: types of aid, impacts of aid on the receiving country
  • the environmental impacts of economic development
  • the effects of economic development on quality of life for the population.

Use one of the four strategies below to revise these areas.
