    Wonder if we'll need case studies that much after the physical exam made almost all my revision look pointless

    Maybe that's what they want you to think :eek:.

    AQA has been so unpredictable this year.

    Also to everyone, map skills are very likely to come up as they were not in the physical exam.

    AQA is sly

    No! not map skills! We learned it the Saturday before the physical exam.

    Eurgh, me too! Although I know the case studies pretty much off by heart, so I hope they ask us a lot about them... On the physical paper, I learned all 20 and only one of them came up :mad:

    My class was meant to study this but then my teacher changed it last minute and we did population instead... Not sure it was the right move though.

    AQA seem to be changing their style of questions this year, which makes me kinda anxious because you can't really predict what they're gonna ask us. On Physical, I noticed quite a few definitions so I'd recommend learning all of they key terms.

    Unit 1 went really nice for my set.... We had a major cramming session like an hour before How did you find it? What questions did you do?

    Yeah it was ok, we didn't have time for a lot of revision beforehand which was a bit of a bummer. I did tectonics, water on the land and the coastal zone. I tried to focus on case studies but the 8-markers were quite vague and you couldn't really always use a case study. I think I need to focus more on this second exam but at least I have my coursework to fall back on if anything terrible happens haha

    I see what you mean, "describe a truncated spur" had me puzzling for ages :confused: I guess the mark scheme will be quite open though.
