I noticed a lack of help groups for Geography revision at A level, would anyone be interested in such a thread? We can share tips and resources on how to revise, and then more specifically with case studies if we are on similar ones. I am on WJEC, what is everyone else?

There are a lot of topics and general revision techniques that do overlap and will help, especially if more people are on here :-)

it could be worse! I have a 2h15 exam and a 1h45 exam,
the first is 45 mins coast essay, 45 min India essay and 45 mins on an investigation into deprivation.
The second one is three 10 markers and two essays, on either water, energy, food supplies or cities. the short questions plus one essay is on two topics and we have a pre released booklet that we are supposed to use on top of our own knowledge, and the final essay is on either of the two topics that aren't on the paper (this year it is food and cities on the paper then either a water or energy essay)

I think it is easier to pick up marks with that format- If I screw up one 25 marker, I screw up a 1/3 of the paper, its easier to stay on topic with shorter answers
