    our geography teacher said you have to use case study detail to get top marks on Indonesia 8 mark question. China or Kerala would have been good case studies to use.

    That's horse****. It might have been applicable, but you weren't instructed to use a case study, therefore, they will not mark you down if you haven't used one.

    I didn't prefer either. But as stupid as this sounds, I think I over revised for Physical Geography! I learnt everything inside out for physical that when it came to the paper I didn't think about my answers as much as I should have (for human I did as I hardly revised).. For example, in the meander question, even though I knew everything like meander scar etc... I forgot to mention it, and also, as I had done the cross section labelled with slip off slope and river cliff etc, I forgot to mention them in the written formation question below! grr so annoying.
    yeah same, it may have been because physical exam was first and alot more interesting ! aha

    I got a B on the cw - 40/60 and I think I done quite well on these two tests. What do you think i roughly needed mark-wise for each test for an A/A*?

    Sorry but, like somebody already said, that is complete crap.
    When they want a case study they ask for a named example.

    Neg for telling the truth? Sorry.

    Perhaps looking at some of the past papers for this specification will help :

    The three topics that you have studied are: Changing Urban Environments, Tourism and Population Change, you will therefore answer all of the questions in the paper under those headings.
