Tbh I think with Geog4b it is less about "revising" and more about "swimming in the booklet" (sorry can't think of a better analogy)

It is less about learning the facts and figures but more about how you would evaluate the situation and justifying it. There isn't really a way of revising for it because you do not know the questions.
Do you think its fine to just look over the data and my extra notes to come to conclusions they day before then? I have an idea on the key issues, but honestly I just do not have the time and its kinda stressing me out.. I really need a B this year in geog, but I'm hoping my AS resit will help that

Thanks for the support people youre right its more about the evaluation of the questions more than anything. Ive got soo many resources to use when the time comes but I just dont want to panic about it when it comes to going over everthing in two weeks time thats all

Im not looking at GEOG4B until my other exams are over, as I have a 2 days gap inbetween my last biology exam and GEOG4B (which is my last ever A-level exam) and in this time I will do practice questions.

your better focussing more on geog3 for now as it has a greater weighting and is much more complicated!

I think you just need to remember the key issues and key words for each theme. Remember you get the AIB in the exam so you can just always use your AIB for reminders unlike Geog3. Ask your school whether you are allowed to write on it, because if you can, do it whilst you are doing the exam! This will help to get down your ideas. however, if you are doing a plan REMEMBER to put it on the answer booklet because it can get marked!

The last question on the paper tends to be an 'outside reading' question and it's usually very obvious that it wants you to talk about things other than in the booklet. Other than that, extra research will help fill out an answer but isn't crucial.
It can't hurt to quote a source too!

What do people think are the main Social, political, economic, environmental and demographic issue for the Kenyan Health Service? I have a list I made a while ago which I will share when I'm back home but I'm not too confident in it. Would also be great to get some extra detail for it or see other people's viewpoints. thanks.

Size:  95.3 KBSo these were the examinations which someone took a picture of on Twitter somehow of the rewritten exams. It includes this unit... If u didn't know, an AQA van was stolen including those papers, they were rewritten so the original questions won't be on it now. Do you think it could be harder? Surely there would have been a lot of maps... Hmm

Item 4 talks about a report set out of the Kenyan government in 2005. Can anyone find this anywhere? I've looked for ages now and had no luck (I've found reports from 2005 but they don't seem to fit the description of what is discussed, e.g. there's no 'section 6' etc etc. Is it deliberately not named so we don't get the report or????

No I have nothing...only went to one lesson today in preparation...luckily have a few more this week. Is it a bit late to get that book...or is it online?

Basically I am in the A2 year, but picked up geography AS this year and they put us all in for the A2 skills paper, as the field work is fresh in our minds rather than doing it next year, so I didn't sit the test today (hope it went well for you though!!!)

I haven't looked at geo4 stuff for about 2 weeks so I hope 3 days is enough to learn enough! Has anyone been given practice exam style questions which they don't mind sharing?
