So the studying for Geography begins!
I love Geography but there is SO MUCH TO LEARN/KNOW.
The best way to revise for me is to go over absolutely everything so you have all your bases covered. I write model answers, take notes, make up pneumonics (I have a pneumonic for every question they ask in Paper 2!
) Look over past papers and see what they ask/how they ask the questions. If you're going to predict what may come up make sure you have everything else covered because sometimes they ask the same type of questions two years in a row e.g. soils 2006 and 2007. Also the pattern of questions in compulsory/choice each year is sporadic so don't hedge your bets on a question being compulsory or choice this year!
Also, make sure you know everything for paper 2! I know it's so time intensive but paper 2 is really a gift because there is a lot more certainty in what they are going to ask because in each question there are roughly 4-6 questions they can ask and usually 3-4 of them come up each year!
It's imperative that you know everything because the time constraints are so big. My teacher says that most people do better on paper 2 because in paper 1 they can ask questions that throw a lot of candidates but in paper 2 they are more prepared!
I know I sound so pompous and seem very patronising I just want to make sure that we are all well prepared for the 31st of May!
Geography is my favourite (and strongest) subject so if anyone has any queries feel free to PM me or post on here. I may put up some model answers/bullet points for certain topics if anyone is struggling and just in general!
