    I printed out a copy of the specification. Wrote down all the information, each piece of information paired with a case study, and did model essays. Hope it helps.

    Make colourful summary sheets. Make them pretty so you're not forcing yourself to study boring black and white notes constantly. Make about 10 A4 double sided sheets with everything you need to know and go through them pretty much everyday until your exam. Little and often helps move information from your short-term to you long-term memory.

    Also, at least two weeks before your exam, attempt a past paper under timed conditions. Check which questions you got wrong. Understand WHY you got that question wrong and then attempt a number of short questions from the chapter(s) you struggled with. Repeat every 2-3 days.

    Another thing that might help with Geography is youtube videos. Visualising things really helps understand them, and there are some pretty cool things up there. Especially if you have difficulty understanding a topic for a first time, or even if you want to go over a well-known topic- use the videos.

    If you have friends doing the same course as you, use your flash cards to test each other. It makes studying less dull, and you pass the time doing something constructive. If you can't work with your friends and end up chatting about, say QI (don't ask), then just go through it with some classmates that you're not best friends with, but can get along with.

    Oh, and try to study early on, giving yourself "treats" should you complete (eg) 3 solid hours of revision+ 4X 15 min breaks. I found it more motivation to study if on a Saturday morning, I'd tell myself that I would go out that night if I finished revising two chapters from each subject. It worked really well for me. Only a note- if you go out- don't drink too much. Hangovers make it difficult to study.

    Hope it helps and good luck with the exam

    Thank-you So much for this.. I've merged two of your ideas which are the cue cards and colours making my cue cards very colourful and bright which will defo help me! I am trying to juggle all my subjects currently doing what you've said! Thank-you so much again! I'm going to hunt down some youtube videos as well!

    Really appreciated!
