My Travel and Tourism teacher last year was s**t!! She didn't know anything so all we did was read and highlight the textbook. I did the exam in January 2013 and got a D, when I repeated the exam in June got an A because I did all the past papers I could find. I found that all the questions were recycled from previous years they just had a different case study! Also the mark schemes are so detailed - they tell you exactly what the examiner wants. I am going to use this technique when revising for my A2 exams in June!! Hope this helps =]

Are you sitting the exam on the 5th? this week?

I have mine then, just wondered if you have any more tips apart from going through past papers/mark schemes?

I've been making lots of que cards with key words, which have been really helpful.

All the suggestions will help!

Thanks

My exam is on the 5th as well for WJEC. I've been going through a number of past paper, they are utterly useful, especially if your lecturers don't really guide you much on exam techniques or extra tips. Just literally go straight to the point, be concise. Don't try to memorise too many cases studies because at the end of the day you'd only need no more than 3 in the whole exam, so what I do is I try to memorise 2 LEDC and 2 MEDC. Try research into what development processes have taken place over the last 50 years. And who how each destination minimises and maximises negative impacts.

Well I'm doing the Unit 5 impacts of tourism development, for you it could be different, but same techniques still applied though.
