    Do I have to learn the names of the plants and how they colonised the land on the spread about succession? I read the specificication and it said to learn one example on primary succession, so I decided to make notes on only the surtsey island one, and I left the sand dune one. Is there a possibility that it'll end up coming up in the exam? I don't want to end up losing marks. http://www.ocr.org.uk/images/81028-specification.pdf

    I guess yes. You must get prepared for anything. You can alternatively, focus on one and just memorize te other a bit

    You can just do one example. I guess this would be a bit untidy, but you can check past papers for the one that appears most, and then go for it.

    What exam board are you with?

    I do AQA and we've never been told to memorise a specific example, just how succession works.

    Option 2, I guess. Why'd you need it?

    Yeah I'm just going to learn one, and I checked past papers and succession has never come up before. So it might not even come up this year, but I'll still learn one example just in case.

    Yeah. If you know the main theme of succession, and the bare facts behind it, you can write it pretty good in an exam with a single example, if it comes, of course.

    The specification only asks you to remember one example, so it would probably be best if you learn the one in the OCR endorsed text books or your teacher's example. They certainly won't test you on a specific example as everyone else will have learned different ones, they may however ask you on specific aspects common to all examples. I'd quickly go over the summary questions/end of chapter questions in the text books to be on the safe side.

    What they can also do in the exam, is give you a specific example which you haven't learned or even seen before, and they may test you on your knowledge of succession based on their example. Best of luck

    Yeah you're right, I checked the end of chapter question and they gave a totally different example of succession and they just asked question based on it.

    Thank you
