    Case Studies?
    It wasn't too bad, but I may have dropped around 10 marks maybe? How was it for you?
    I barely used Case Studies expect for the first question describing the movement of plate boundaries to cause a volcanic eruption and on the question to describe the effects of tropical storms I said Hurricane Katrina caused a 12-18ft storm surge...that's about it. Did you use any?

    I thought the exam went well. Were you told to amend a question before the exam, in my school everyone took the opportunity to read through the questions in advance

    lol true, I really want to get an A* in geography.
    I got 58/60 in the controlled assessment so I have a chance.
    But tourism has always been my weakest topic, perhaps because we learnt it in just 4 weeks.

    Wow, well done!
    My advice would be to look at the specification and tick off all the topics you know while going through it. Is your exam this Friday?
    Good Luck!
