AS geography questions helpWatch this thread
Hi, was wondering how people get 9 or 10 out of 10 on these geography exam questions. I seem to only be able to get around 5(D). I'd be really grateful if some one could give a sample essay egutline 2 changes to the physical environment that give evidence for climate change? or any tips on how to get good marks. Thanks for any help
I usually start off by underlining any key words in the question, and defining them in the introduction. For this essay, you could begin by explaining climate change, and perhaps back it up with data.
You then want to tackle the two changes, and again, bring in geographical terminology. If you've done a case study on somewhere like the Arctic, draw on multiple examples from it AND explain why it is happening. It's all well and good being able to write down a keyword, but what the examiners are really looking for is your understanding of it. So definition + application is key.
To conclude (you don't necessarily have to, but it's safe to do so and only takes a line or two), summarise your argument, and perhaps note that these two changes are just two of many changes to the physical environment that give evidence for climate change. Referencing alternative examples here will close your argument nicely.
