    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

    I've scanned in the benefits and problems - best way to remember them is FRAPSWIM and WWWEGS. For each bene/prob explain what it is, who benefits/is affected and give an example.
    For the political problems question my teacher currently has my notes on that one so if you need help on that i'm only going to get it back on Tuesday.

    Tbh, my geography teacher is woeful. To him, if you don't understand something it's because you're an idiot not worth teaching any longer. He's given us around 50 different sheets for every sub-topic but only about a quarter of these are even nearly useful, so I'm having to spend a lot time wading through this useless information.

    Hope everyone is feeling confident though (:

    Also hoping to god there's not much Urban in there and lots of Coast

    Hey guys, was wondering if someone could help me. I was copying down model answers for questions and noticed that on the SQA website the last bullet point for a formation question always says Award up to 1 mark for a named example.
    I've seen this on formation of a corrie, stack and scree slope. Does anyone know of any acceptable examples for these features? Thanks

    In my notes for named examples I have:
    Glaciated features: Corrie- Red Tarn, Helvellyn. U shaped Valley- High Cup Gill, the Pennines. Crag and Tail- Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile.

    Coasts: Headlands and Bays- Swanage bay and the Headland, Dorset. Caves, Arches, Stacks, Stumps- Old Harry for a Stack, Old Harry's Wife for a Stump and Durdle Door for an Arch. Spit- Spurn Head, Holderness and Orford Ness, Suffolk. Sand Bars- Slapton Sands, Devon.

    Limestone: Limestone Pavement- Malham Cove. Swallowhole- Gaping Gill. Caves- White Scar Caves. Gorge- Stean Gorge. Dry Valley- Watlowes Dry Valley. Stalactites and Stalagmites- Dream Caves, Castleton and Ingleborough Cave. Scars- Twistleton Scar, Yorkshire Dales.

    Those were the ones my teacher gave us.

    If anyone is wanting notes on lithosphere I can scan them in tomorrow, they have diagrams and named examples and stuff.

    You need to be careful with the examples for corries, limestone pavements etc especially if u are doing rural land resources because u need a case study and if u dont state ur case study u lose 4marks straight up and if ure examples are not related to ur case study u dont get marks for them. Markers actually sit and make sure your examples are right by checking online if it's a place they dont know about to make sure what you are saying is true.

    anyone know how scree slopes are formed?

    and a full mark corrie/u shaped valley questions? always just get like 6-7 marks out of 10.

    e.g


    U-shaped Valley :

    A U-shaped Valley is formed by the water within a V-shaped valley freezing during an ice age. As the glacier moves down the valley due to gravity, the bottom of the glacier begins to pluck debris from the bottom, deepening the valley. The rocks which are lodged in the glacier now begin to wear down the bottom through abrasion. The sides are wore down through abrasion also.

    What else can I add to that ??

    For a U shaped valley:

    Also briefly explain what plucking and abrasion are.
    Picture of my notes under the spoiler. Excuse the bad quality.

    Are you wanting notes for a corrie as well?
