    I made revision cards for the Population Change section of the AS Geography Unit 1 exam, and thought I would share them on here. Hopefully they're helpful to someone else as well as me!
    I've made sure that all of the slides match the specification given by AQA.

    Thanks for the revision cards

    Just got a few questions.

    It says we need case studies of countries at different stages of development, so China before the one-child policy would be stage 2? And now it's stage 4? Whereas France is stage 5?

    And in the spec, it doesn't mention anything about Malthus/Boserup/Club of Rome, but we were taught it. Do you think I should revise it?

    Thanks

    I've just been checking through, it would appear that Malthus/Boserup... etc are a common theme for many of the Geography units, so it can't hurt to learn them.

    I think my GG teacher took the countries at different stages of development to mean an MEDC and an LEDC, hence France and China..?

    It might be helpful to look at some past exam papers to see how the content relates to the questions they're going to ask you.

    Yeah, I think I may learn then, but I haven't seen Simon/Club of Rome come up before though

    Yeah, I have seen the types of question they ask, and it's generally related to how successful/evaluate the policies to control population growth.

    How are you finding Unit 1? It seems that Unit 2 is a lot easier than 1 :/ And there is so much content for Unit 1 :/

    It's really, really hard, I'm having to learn a new type of exam technique because these papers are like nothing that I've ever seen before. If the spec was a little more clear about EXACTLY what it wants us to learn it would make targeting revision a lot easier. Biology and Chemistry have specifications that are broken right down.

    Yeah I know exactly what you mean, just going through energy at the moment, and the specification if just so vague Well biology isn't as good, but the chemistry spec is really informative...

    How's your geography revision going?

    Does anyone here do Energy as the optional human topic? If so, do you know what they mean by "case studies at national scale of two contrasting approaches to managing energy supply and demand". I don't think we did this in class :/ Which case studies were you taught about?

    Hm, so about their energy mixes and why their energy mix is like that? What points did you cover for them?

    I'm trying not to 'guess' my grades, but hopefully not too bad Yeah, low grade boundaries please!
