I'm doing globalization and development, plate tectonics and world cities.
What revision guides are available apart from the collins guide (already have it)?
You have the Collins one that's Student Support Materials - Unit 3?
There's those ones from that famous book company, forgot the name. Go to your local Waterstones and have a look in the revision guides section, there's bound to be quite a few.

Lol yeah! I had 25% extra time at GCSE, I wish I still had it now! D: and yeah Humans OK, but I'm more of a scientist, definitely prefer physical! I find plate tectonics simple as well, a lot of case studies though! Weather is the opposite, we are doing weather at the moment, and its a lot of theory! I've just finished World Cities, bleh its OK, not good, not bad. So glad I'm not needing to write an essay about it in the summer!
Yay, same page!
What's World Cities about? (Finishing Globalisation, WC is next topic)
Hey, I've just recieved my mocks back and despite revising ridiculously hard for them, I'm still really struggling with the essay technique, especially in the 40 markers, which are an absolute nightmare! My teachers say that my knowledge is good but I need to improve my essay technique. I know they mark our mocks harshly to shock us into revising and working harder, but no matter how much revision I do I can't seem to improve my essays. Does anybody have any good resources I could use or tips for the essays? Any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated.

Anyone feeling confident about this so far? I've just found out that since I've got so many UMS in my previous papers, all I need is a B on this paper to get an A overall!
I'm confident-ish. :L Just so much to learn!! And I've figured that out as well, I only need 80/120 UMS to get my A, and thats a high C! xD Good luck
Not sure whether to aim for A or A* to be honest - I had Paper 4 remarked, and it came back exactly the same... I could 'take it easy' and get a B on this paper for the A, but if I want A*, I need like 97% on this paper, and there's no guarantee I'll get anywhere near that...
Bit of a debate, since I have to worry about Psychology too.
Doing Plate Tectonics, Weather, Development & Globalization and Conflicts (our teachers make us learn four even though you only answer three to give us more choice) SO MUCH to learn though! However I am enjoying it and want to do it at uni!
How is everyone revising?
