    I really hope that Industry will be optional this year. Last time it was optional in 2010 so there is a good chance of this happening again!
    I'm going to take the risk and not study for it. Maybe I'll just quickly skim through the notes.

    But seriously; is there anything worse than human geography?

    What do people usually do for a Limestone Landscape question (Rural Land Resources), like how many features and which ones?
    It usually says surface and underground features. I will usually just do limestone pavement for my surface feature, but sometimes if I have time I might shove in a sentence or two on pot holes or shake holes to try and get 1 or 2 marks! For underground I normally do cave/cavern and stalagmites/stalactites. Although I highly doubt they will put limestone in rural land resources two years in a row, although I think there is a high probability it will be paper 1 lithosphere question

    Yeah I think Industry will be optional this year! I might do a wee prediction later tonight or something, see how many I get right (probably none :L)

    Yes, atmosphere. I can only do climate change and the ITCZ question and they were the last 2 years Crying

    I've scanned in my notes on South Wales and also my Soil profiles - I know people have already posted their own ones but I thought I might as well upload mine too!

    The stuff in bold is examples that u NEED to have. I cannot stress that one enough. Examples are the key to getting full marks.

    Think the best topic for paper two is development and health but I find river basin management quite hard to understand

    Your notes are pretty good! I'll need to remember about the Cardiff University - I never had an example to back up the skilled work force point

    I personally LOVE RBM.
    There are like only 4 questions they can ask.
    - Need for water managment wherever
    - Selecting a dam site
    - Benefits & Consequences of named water project.
    - Describing a graph

    You learn Benefits & Consequences and Dam sites all by heart and you already have almost 40 marks

    Suppose you just need to memorise a 24 mark question! There's also the question distribution of rivers

    I do land resources too!! It's good cos its linked to lithosphere, in a way it tones down the amount of work to learn

    Thankyou so much. I just took a look at yours just now, there's not much difference*(sorry i think i said similarity )

    My teacher's always stressing about how we should always always put examples so we have examples to backup like literally everything haha

    Yes please! That would be really helpful as my teacher only gave us about ten points for the benefits and problems question do you have any on the distribution of rivers?

    I have A LOT for benefits and problems, would you like me to type up a sample answer or something as they'res sooo much to scan! *Edit, there's not that much to scan XD

    As for the distribution, just scanned a page I have in my notes jotter and attached it. I think thats pretty much all you need to write for an answer - a sentence for each river on name, source, direction of flow and what it flows into.

    I don't mind whatever's easier for you and your so lucky you've got brilliant notes! On the other hand our teacher doesn't really care about us
