I can't post my notes because you won't be able to read my handwriting and they're basically all out of a book. I'll give some general tips for the exam though.

Have you got the green book? If not, get it. I'd also reccomend downloading each powerpoint for each topic.

You only need to learn three topics, with the other three briefly to throw in a few synoptic links in section B. Learn two topics well for your section A questions, then focus on the pre-release for section B (which comes out tomorrow).

Using the powerpoints, according to the cheif examinier, if you learn those and a few case studies you're more or less set. 1-2 case studies per point at most. I'm personally doing biodiversity and energy security at the moment, waiting on tomorrow to see what my third topic will do.

What powerpoints are you talking about?? Got the pre-release today, I'm pretty happy with my Unit 4. Not so cool with Biodiversity.

Look on the edexcel website. Under unit 3 help there's a powerpoint with general tips, as well as a power point per unit.

HOW DO YOU REVISE FOR THE SYNOPTIC!!!
i really haven't a clue
The way im going about it atm is going through the resource & jotting down notes to understand it, then going through it & researching under the headings- threats, actions, players & futures
Then going through people quotes & analysing & using them to back up points. but i really dont know!
Can you use case studies not to do with the Pacific Islands? How much extra research should I be doing? Should i split it into different Islands- this is what my teacher said to do but im not sure.
ANY HELP PLEASEEEEE!!
Thanks

Okay so i've just checked out the synoptic links advice...apparently we should be stating our source for the wider information we've got for the Section B pre-release stuff?

Is this right because i'm sure we only needed to do that for Unit 4....
