    also doing tectonics, ecosystems and world cities. i got a C at AS so will be retaking both papers but I'm creating booklets with everything in for the A2 topics so let me know if you want me to post them. they include questions and task pages as well... helps me.
    any advice for me because I'm not very good at knowing what the exam board want in an answer, thanks x
    I have a very reliable source within AQA who has strongly suggested that candidates should prepare essays on:

    Tectonics: Intrusive and extrusive landforms
    Weather and Climate: The origin and characteristics of anticyclones
    Ecosystems: Temperate deciduous woodland characteristics and reasons for existence
    World Cities: Retailing and regeneration internationally
    Development and Globalisation: Trade groupings pros and cons
    Contemporary Conflicts and Challenges: How to control immigration and the issues it brings

    Obviously, these MAY NOT come up, but it is likely they will.

    Best of luck.

    From what I have been told, they are the 40 mark essays. They were the preliminary selections made by the board. Only once over the past 5 years have they changed the questions once the prelim. selections were made.

    Does 'Intrusive and extrusive landforms' only apply to volcanoes?
    What possible questions could they ask?

    i honestly cant see a 40m on landforms coming up, theres far to little to talk about let alone the lack of case studies but i wont dismiss it either way.

    Yes you are correct.

    They may ask about how the landforms are changed by the type of lava, maybe a few examples of volcanoes with this type of lava could be given.

    but grouping of nations was the 40 marker for development and globalisation last year so surely they won't repeat the same one two years in a row?

    It is, of course, up to you to choose what you revise in depth over the next two days but I would strongly recommend that landforms are given careful consideration.

    The Great Whin Sill, the High Force. Cauldron Snout, Hadrian's Wall etc are all examples of case studies which come up in the official text book.

    If they are 40 mark essays how can retail and regeneration come up?? Or is that for structured?

    More focus this year on European Union and trade. My source has implied that the current debate and upcoming referendum about the EU will play a huge role in Thursday's D & G section and essay choice.

    Structured questions change depending on available material re. copyright etc... Harder to tell but expect something relevant for conflicts, separatism etc...

    I'm pretty sure anticyclones wouldn't come up as a 40 marker for W&C because we aren't told to learn even one case study on them. It would be pretty much impossible to write 40 marks just on the theory about anticyclones, but I'll go over them again just in case I suppose.

    Talk about Winter vs Summer weather, Fogs, maybe mention a storm event.

    For the structured questions a certain event in 1987 may make a big appearance. Let's see if you've revised enough and see what I mean by that!!

    Best of luck on Thursday.
