Pretty much my idea of a nightmare paper! :eek3:


RLR- Limestone and Environmental conflicts
Well in RLR they ask for upland so that can be glaciation or limestone. Which is your case study?

Whoever repped me thanks (:

My ideal Paper would be

Compulsary
Atmosphere - ITCZ
Hydrosphere - Hydrological Cycle
Population - Differences between developing countries
Industry - Why did Industry set up here

Optional
Lithosphere - Coastal
Biosphere - Plant successions across sand dunes (Can't spell the proper word )
Urban - Changes in the CBD
Rural - Intensive Peasant

RLR - Glaciation Features, Conflicts, their solutions and their effectiveness, Limitations of the landscape
Health and Development - Only Malaria, no PHC. (:

Can they also ask about coasts in RLR? If they do i am utterly stuffed :rolleyes:
We did the Yorkshire Dales (Malham Cove), but also the Cairngorms although not in as much detail... What did you do?

Pretty much the same idea as limestone and glaciated uplands, just get good half dozen examples for the area. The features, longs you know two or three examples from both, erosion and deposition you should be fine. Knowing the caves/arches/blow holes/stacks/stumps is a safe option and can give you many marks, especially with the diagram.

Loch Lomond fro glaciation and Dorset for coasts.

Another good book is Higher Geography: Grade Booster as it gives both weak and strong model answers. I recommend you get it.

Does anyone have any predictions for what is going to come up this year? My teacher is convinced there will be an Industry map question.
My teacher had a go at predicting the whole 2 papers. Looks like what she said will come up.

Hey everyone.
So the studying for Geography begins! :o:
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! :p: ) 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!

Dude....I used to be you!!

And I would say if you are that good then don't do any revision. Focus on your weaker subjects.

I'm not that good, I just study hard. I only have Physics before which is on Friday and I've been studying for that anyway so I'm splitting my time between the two, then I have a few days after Geography to prepare for Computing (have been studying it continuously this year anyway). Thanks for the advice anyway!
