    well tbh i might not go to the lessons now - (they're currently learning weather). my teacher said i can just focus on three topics (tectonics, world cities and development and globalisation) so i'm probably gonna do that!

    i really hate weather. all of the warm front, cold front and occluded front nonsense really mindf***s me haha

    Yeah good move..probably the only time it's acceptable to not turn up to lesson :P But they're right, you only need 3 not 4 so just sod weather. Yeah I know!!! It's so boring yet difficult. Have you started revising for June?

    yeahhh exactly! i had to learn all of it for unit 4 though because apparently they can ask about them in the skills part as 'synoptic maps' are in the syllabus! oh how did you do in unit 4?

    i've just started making model answers for plate tectonics past paper short answer questions! i'm not looking forward to learning the case studies i haven't done much revision overall though, wbu?

    Hoping so, I got a B. If I don't get an A it won't be the end of the world. What did you get in unit 4? I know! It's mad. World cities is the worst..there's loads in that but I enjoy that topic the most.

    i'm sure you'll get an A i got 74/80 so i just scrapped an A* (72)! tbh i didn't mind word cities as i found a lot of it to be common sense! i really like globalisation though, i hope we get a 40 marker on trade blocs - i'll be over the moon!!!

    sounds great yes ! would be good! its okay, at the moment I am just note taking and getting prep - I've started making revision posters for tectonics and have gone over a couple of questions trying to find the best way to tackle 40 markers so structure etc...How about yourself?
