Hey

Just made this thread so that we could discuss how prep is going for the fast approaching exam and the methods of revision that you are using as well as the different case studies that people have. Especially since we've had the pre release for a while now.

Hopefully we can all help each other out and all smash this exam at the end of the day!

Hope this helps everybody! From, eachcomingnight

Its a mini subevaluation after every section and you just sum up the section and state the over arguement again

I went through the results plus stuff edexcel provides and it hints that if you mention how reliable the fieldwork is using keywords topical, bias, cross reference and peer reviewed you may get added points. Can someone give me examples on how i can apply these keywords and check the reliability on my fieldwork? It will be a tremendous help!

I think that for this exam you want to have lots of case studies in only a small amount of detail. Instead of just focusing in lots of detail on a small number of cases
That is what the exam board actually recommends because it shows the depth of your knowledge

Well at the end of every section you want to make sure that you have a subevaluation which involves linking back to the overall question and stating your arguement again.
And you conclusion at the end of the whole essay should be about stating the overal arugement of the whole essay as well as a general summary of the whole report.

P.S Nice to see that there are some other people actually doing this topic and so we can actaully discuss it since its the least popular topic!!

Hi, I've got 5 case studies but going to use 3 in the exam.

I think the question will be something focused towards the impacts of leisure on tourism on fragile landscapes

fieldwork is primary data you collect on your own by visiting a site (usually some area in your country relevant to the topic) and using methodology like interviews, questionnaires etc. Now its a little too late to worry about it because we will be having our exams in a few hours time! You will lose a few marks perhaps for your methodology however if you analyse your data well you will be able to cover it. Make sure your conclusion is strong. Anyways all the best!

Same, the question was quite open and straightforward which was good! I just hope my argument was 'in your face' enough.

The question was perfect literally the question that my teacher predicted except the word that she used was fragility and the word they used in the exam was vulnerable - so then I just switched them out.
I'm quite happy with that.
Basically just wrote everything that I memorised from the essay that I wrote my teacher marked and then I memorised.
