I'm doing Restless Earth, Ice on the Land and The Coastal Zone.
Hmm, the cgp guide isn't that good. Use the phillip allan one or use the aqa endorsed textbook. The CGP guides don't explain things that well and although some of the case studies are good, some aren't that good.

I'm doing The Living World (my least favourite), Coastal Zone and Ice on Land. I know the case studies apart from the deserts: forgot about revising Thar desert case study and the desert itself (plants, soil etc.)

Just remember to try and get all of the information you have learnt into the 8 mark questions and ensure you get 3 for SPaG.
Also be prepared for the graph questions.

Key things:

Water
Transport:
- Traction - Boulder roll along the bottom of the river bed
- Saltation - Boulders bounce alone the bottom hitting other rocks
- Suspension - Material light enough to be carried by current
- Solution - Material dissolved in water

Erosion:
- Hydraulic action - The sheer force of the water, it involves air being trapped in rocks and then cracking
- Corrosion - Chemical reaction between acidic water and rocks
- Abrasion - River using its load to bash against the river bed and banks causing scratches
- Attrition - Boulders that bang into each other and knock bits off

Ice
Movement:
- Rotational slip
- Basal slip

Deposition:
- Till - Made from boulders and clay
- Drumlins - Small hummocks made from till

Erosion:
- Plucking - Ice freeze on a rock and is then ripped out
- Abrasion - rocks grinding on the valley sides and floor
- Freeze thaw weathering - Water entering cracks, freezing and expanding causing the rock to crack

Features of erosion:
- Corrie
- Arete
- Pyramidal peak
- Glacial trough
- Hanging valley

You'll need to know how these landforms are formed.

We didn't have coursework but we had a controlled assessment (not sure if they're the same!) but I somehow managed to get 60/60- very pleased!

Hi there, new to this thread!

Have you been allowed to get your coursework mark back? We have only been given a preliminary grade for our coursework, but not the actual mark because of the moderation that goes on etc.

Well it hasn't been moderated yet, but that's the mark our teacher gave us for the mocks (because they took into consideration the exam and the controlled assessment)
