    Thought I would start a new thread for the big A2 geography paper in summer as the last one was dedicated to the 2012 paper!

    Please discuss how revision is going, what topics you are learning, share notes and predictions for what will be in the exam...

    Yes UNIT 3 (NOT 3a!!)... Awesome, I am doing tectonics, world cities, and development and globalisation!

    How are you finding tectonics and world cities?

    Tectonics is by far my preferred and world cities seems a little less geography like..it just felt like an odd topic to be in A level geography. How about you?
    Weather is a tough one! But your not doing that one anyway ha

    Yeah tectonics is enjoyable! World cities I am less keen on and seems to have so many case studies Ah I'm glad i am not, it sounds boring!

    How much revision are you going to do for the exam??

    Yeah I know exactly what you mean! Everything seems so synoptic...its making me so worried as I feel I've forgotten everything from AS! (not good)
    I've only just started hardcore revision..which i also feel like I should of start earlier, we have just under 3 months so I hope it will be alright!
    What about you? And how are you revising?
    I've just been re-writing my notes, but i feel like nothing goes in :/ I need better revision strategies!

    I'm doing tectonics, globalisation and ecosystems. What case studies are people doing? I'm doing Tohoku earthquake, boxing day tsunami, Pinatubo and Mount Saint Hellens for tectonics, then BP Deepwater Horizon, Batwa pygmies of Uganda and Troopers hill for Ecoystems, unsure for globalisation atm

    Anyone got any ideas how to learn case studies?? I have about 8 to learn, it's so mean of them haha! :P Does anyone know whether you have to know specific stats or would you be able to get away with just knowing the general gist (e.g. that responses were better in Mt St Helens than Montserrat). Trying to learn all these tiny little details is making me go crazy!

    Condense each case study to one side of A4 putting a few of the key facts e.g. what happened, the responses, the recovery etc. The examiners are not expecting you to know loads and loads just enough to show you have a fairly good understanding. When you come to learn them write them out and keep on doing this until you can do it from memory!

    Good luck

    Thank you, that's really reassuring - I was thinking the examiners were expecting us to roll off 25+ statistics for each of the 6 case studies with complete accuracy :/ I hope it goes well for you

    I'm getting pretty confused about humidity.

    Can someone just confirm that what I think is correct please
    Relative humidity = % of water vapour in atmosphere with 100% being saturation
    Humidity = amount of water vapour in the atmosphere

    Relative humidity and humidity both decrease as temperature increases

    Does a decrease in relative humidity mean that the air can hold more water until it becomes saturated???

    Help! I'm struggling, hope revision is going well !

    Well about 4-5 dayd till the exam and i will be doing almost 6 hours a day on geography. Hopefully i can stick to this and do 2 hours per topic (2 physical and 1 human). I have trouble remembering all the figures any tips? All the content is relatively easy to remember and only requires a few days to understand but keeping these figures in my head is getting very hard closer to the exam. Any tips?
