Hey,

Does anyone have any useful geography notes/revision notes or revision websites that would help me prepare for the OCR Geography A2 exam????

I am kind of struggling to produce good solid casestudies for part of the exam and i am also struggling with bits of the skills paper......

If you have any materials (e.g. powerpoints) that will help i would be very grateful if you could pass them on to me

Thank you

Lets make this the official topic for this exam!

Make sure you can compare & contrast LEDC and MEDC examples for both climatic and earth hazards!

My geography teacher told me that the best way to answer every question in the Global Issues exam is to make reference to MEDC's and LEDC's, Urban and Rural locations, Short-term and long-term management and Pro-active and reactive management. Also if you choose to answer a climatic hazard question avoid talking about flooding as the exam board seem to only consider this as an Earth Hazard despite it being in both the Earth Hazards and Climatic Hazards sections of the textbook.

i thought it was ok- expected far worse and pretty decent questions. We'd practiced most of them in class.
Couldve been easier- couldve been harder.
Mega pushed for time though! Globalisation essay was rushed to finish and so not great..

How are people revising skills?

does anyone know how to do bullet point two for population and resources? its "how can resources be defined and classified?" I have no case studies and only have examples of groundwater supply running out (which changes its definition)
