    So after that horrid physical paper, I am really worried about what the human paper would be like. I am doing Population, tourism and development gap, so any predictions on how hard it may be and what may come up?

    I need help basically, in the human exam I wrote and developed like 8 different points for the 8 mark questions but I didn't use a case study. It said ' use your own knowledge' so did we have to use a case study or do we only use a case study when it asks for one?

    I'm doing Population change, Globalisation and Tourism.
    Last year these are the studies that came up:
    Population change: How can a Non birth control policy - achieve sustainable development
    Globalisation: One renewable energy source to explain how it might help achieve
    sustainable development.
    Touristm: How ecotourism has contributed to sustainable development

    Development gap: Use a case study of a natural hazard to explain how development can be hindered by environmental factors

    well after that ****ttty physical paper,
    the only way to revise is to revise everything, case studies and theoretical stuff

    btw AQA did say that from 2014, they were going to make the papers harder by testing us on our understanding instead of just knowledge

    I agree, we just have to learn the whole thing.

    Where did AQA state that the papers were going to get harder btw? Did they just say it for gcse or alevel too?

    When it says 'use your own knowledge' it basically means that you don't have to use a case study to get a level 3 (8/8) answer. I probably would mention a few details from a case study if you can't think of anything specific to say. I was kinda annoyed in the physical paper when I had The Restless Earth, Rocks and Landscapes and Coasts because there was only one case study question in the whole paper.

    I found the paper horrid due to the fact that there were no case studies, I spent hours learning them, and the fact that it pin pointed on specific details e.g. protect, predict and prepare

    I got a feeling this one will be way harder:
    Last one had no case studies(one to be exact) so this one might have a lot. There are much more human case studies(just shorter).
    There was no map skills-I hate map skills so im expecting them to come up.
    They might have more weird 8 markers.

    I agree, I mostly worried about development gap, it is so hard

    Don't worry too much, grade boundries will be low. I do tourism,Globalisation and population change so I don't really know what to say about development gap.

    Tourism should be OK for me, it's a fairly simple concept overall.

    Just worried about population change and the development gap, I can see stuff coming up which is probably testing our understanding. Not looking forward to this.

    I am okay with tourism and population - I know the content but I think the questions will be weird again.

    Doing the exact same topics as you. Idk they probably were trying to throw us off with the physical... so I wouldn't be surprised if the Human paper had a sh*t load of case studies :/
