It depends what you mean by write a case study! Are you talking about the Unit 2 questions?

Thats a very generic questions, as different case studies require different information. But a basic case study needs background information (location, GDP, population etc), problems, impacts (SEEP), solutions and players involved.

I've found the best way to do mine is to do it on flash cards or on one piece of paper . For example for my arctic case study ive included on one page a fact file about how global warming has affected the Arctic with facts like population, sea level rise, temp rise ect.. Then i've gone on and made tables with ecological,environmental, economic impacts with a table next to it with given examples and a few figures

Don't forgot your stats as well, try and remember a couple for each case study (or at least one)... This will impress the examiners more

I've always been taught to split a case study into four sections:

1. Background Information
2. Causes
3. Impacts (Split into social/economic/environmental and short/long term)
4. Solutions (Split into short/medium/long term)

Obviously the exact formula is slightly different depending on the precise case study.

One other tip I have is to only allow yourself to use two sides of an A4 page for your case study (unless your handwriting is huge!) as this forces you to condense your ideas down into easy to remember facts that will be of more use to you in an exam than massive paragraphs full of information.

I hope this helps, feel free to message me if you need more help!
