    Would make sure that you revise 3 in detail by the exam, if you want to do the 4th then you can.

    Depends. How much time will you have to revise Geography over the next three weeks?

    I'll just be revising Geography for two weeks before the exam but I haven't done jack so far - nothing to worry about.

    I've only been taught three topics haha, but if I had been I think I would of probably just focused on three otherwise too much content!

    Just found this thread and had a read through, glad it's here! Picked up a few good revision techniques that I'll try out.

    I've not done as much revision as I'd like for this yet, as I'm stressing about re-sit exams before! As soon as the re-sits are out of the way, I can properly concentrate on this

    I'm doing Tectonics, Ecosystems, World Cities and Globalisation, although I'm not as confident with Globalisation, so (although I'll revise it all) I'll probably do the other three in the exam.

    My revision so far has been collecting some decent text book notes and doing past papers. I think past papers are the best methods of revision. It's all well and good knowing the stuff, but I struggle with answering the questions correctly.

    Good luck to everyone!

    In response to the user above, while I do find that past papers are a good means of revision- do you not find that it is a lot of time spent for only focusing on a single topic. Whereas revising from a text book or similar resource means you can cover more areas per hour? Just my opinion for geography, as they are just long questions.

    Past paper questions aren't that useful as the chief examiner says he never repeats questions, I look and them and check I could answer them, but don't do them properly

    questions are never repeated, but there are some very similar questions. e.g. changing one word to ask for the opposite of something that has previously been asked.

    i think a lot of its down to personal choice as to which topics you feel most confident on, im least confident on weather, we finished the content for it today but i dont like the topic still, so im going to revise world cities, development and globalisation, plate tectonics a lot, and then weather not quite as much but enough so i can have it as a back up incase the plate tectonics question is rubbish

    Copied and pasted from a few notes:

    Re-urbanisation
    Characteristics, causes and effects
    Re-urbanisation is the movement of people into the city centre or inner city as part of urban regeneration. There are three main processes:
    • In-movement by individuals or groups of individuals into older housing that was in a state of disrepair and the improvement of that housing – gentrification
    • In-movement by people as part of large-scale investment programmes aimed at urban regeneration in a wider social, economic and physical sense – property-led regeneration schemes
    • The move towards sustainable communities, allowing individuals and communities who live in city centres to have access to a home, a job and a reliable income, with a reasonable quality of life and opportunities to maximise personal potential through education and health provision, and through participation in local democracies
    Thankyou for the nots and reply.
    This will help with my revision

    anyone have any recent case studies for tecs?

    7th of may - 5 were killed when the mt mayon erupted (I'm sure people saw this on the news)

    15th may Popocatepetl (mexico) has become active, emitting ash and steam - it is said 11,000 will need to be
    evacuated

    seismic ones (thanks BBC)

    A small earthquake was felt in parts of Wester Ross on Wednesday evening.
    The British Geological Survey recorded a 2.8 magnitude quake centred on Gairloch at 18:43. Local resident Roy MacIntyre told BBC Radio Scotland that he had felt the walls of his house shudder as if a large bus had passed by outside. Also on Wednesday, a 1.4 mag quake was felt south of Cannich in Strathglass at 07:43. A 1.3 mag earthquake was felt near Torridon in Wester Ross on 9 May.

    I think it will be great if we could talk about recent events to use in the exam!

    You could also add April 2013 - Sichuan, especially if this is one of your case studies as it is an interesting addition to your other facts and is evidence of how seismically active the fault line is. Although the recordings of magnitude vary (6.6 - 7.0), there were 200 deaths and numerous other socioeconomic impacts.

    see AQA for published dates, anyone that posts it is breaking copyright and if you urgently need it (no students do) then go and speak to your teacher.
