    Will there be an 8 marker, so a case study needed, for each topic? Thanks

    If someone hasn't already posted this:
    a. How are you feeling for the exam?
    b. Which topics are you doing for the physical paper?
    I'm doing Plates, Rivers and Coasts

    Feel free to ask questions here too.

    Remember that the paper is 1 hour and 30 minutes and you're advised to spend 30 minutes on each question - though you should know which questions you're doing by now.

    Remember that case studies form the basis of your 6-8 mark questions and:
    If it asks for causes, do physical and human.
    If it asks for effects, do SEEP (which is social, economic, environmental and political/physical)
    If it asks for responses, do short term, then long term.

    Good luck!
    (Oh, and feel free to predict questions as well.)

    Yes there is always an 8 marker which usually means describing a process or a case study question.

    A possible of up to 16 case studies could come up so its best to prep for all of them with some 8 markers
