    I didn't do that topic for mine, but what really helped me is that I went through all the past papers and looked at all the possible questions they could ask, as there is not to many they can ask. I just wrote possible answers to each kind of question and I managed to get 76/100 hope this helps

    Re-draw the diagrams over and over until you start to remember them, that's the best way to learn them. But also think about what the diagrams mean, if you have a general understanding of everything that is happening instead of a formulated response then it will be easier for you to explain.

    Geography is a heavy subject in terms of theory, and there's a ridiculous amount of marks so its about spilling out everything that you know onto the paper. I wouldn't drop the subject, I actually found it to be my most interesting subject last year, although I don't think we did rural land degradation, whatever that is sounds pretty dull.

    Good luck, all the best. Like someone else said look at past papers and markers solutions to get a clear indication of what to expect in the exam.

    What I did was come up with a list of possible questions using past exams and homework questions. Then write and memorise model answers. Found it useful to put each point as a bullet, then use mnemonics and the like. I got 199/200 in my prelim so clearly worked.

    There are only really a set number of questions that can come up, especially for paper 2.
