There seems to be loads of other thread for how to revise for other subjects but not geography which is the one which im finding the hardest. I have also got an AS Business exam in Business Studies. What would be the best way to revise for these subjects?

Geography - WJEC
Business Studies - AQA

There tends to be a lot of information required in questions so summarise your notes, draw diagrams so key words/pictures will make you remember the rest of a point. Find out exactly what topic you struggle with the most and start there, no point putting it off if you don't like it etc.

Past papers and looking at marking schemes to see where the marks actually come from is also helpful.

Flash cards are good I'm doing Edexcel so not sure how similar it is, but last year I focused on the case studies + learnt the theory that went with them - it worked really well for me 'cos I always knew a case study to illustrate what I way saying

Currently, I'm doing Edexcel A2 Geography and I find it okay/better. I found it so hard in AS and I have struggled so much from an E (assessments, tests etc.) to a B (exam). What I did is I do the mind map to label the main points from each case study. Also, I did a lot, lot, lot of revision cards and keep repeating it over and over in my mind. Don't just do one revision technique because doing a range of revision techniques will help you massively in many ways - helping many information to process in brain. It's not hard, though as long as you revise it well enough throughout a year OR a few months earlier before the exams.

REVISION TECHNIQUES:
- mind map
- diagrams, e.g. the greenhouse effect or el nino etc.
- revision cards
- flash cards
- past paper with mark scheme helps you to secure the top marks
- writing repetitively (best to do this weeks before exam to improve your memory skill)
- having breaks at many intervals, e.g. every 20 min, have a break for a few min to process the information.
- don't eat sugary foods, best to eat the fruits or healthy snacks (truly helped me a lot)
- PRACTISE, PRACTISE, PRACTISE!!
Don't freak out, though and struggles & stresses will turn out to be useful as they help you to cope under pressure.

for A level I wrote all my notes out in bullet point form, and highlighted key words so i read over them several times through just doing that. I also did loads of past papers. however the most important thing to do is to make sure you learn case studies. the way i did that was to not use any from a textbook- i didn;t touch a textbook throughout A level geography. I got my case studies from geography magazines like 'geographical' and 'national geographic'. 'geographical review' is a good one as it is aimed at A level geography students. i also made my own case studies from reading news stories/ articles. i found that if you make the case studies from things you are interested in then it is less of an effort to remember them. take an interest in all things geography- thats the best way i think

Write down everything you know about a case study. Then check your books to see what you missed. If you don't have enough points to be equipped to answer certain questions, or there are some essential points you have missed, learn them. But now you know what you don't need to look over again, which is very valuable.
