    For both units do all the past papers you can, but especially do them for unit 2! Unit 2 is incredibly predictable and repetitive so the markschemes are largely similar across the board (it's easier to get an A in unit 2 than in unit 1 in my opinion), I managed to predict a question about weather diaries would come up in my exam, and it did! So my revision was just past papers and using the CGP revision guide tbh it was like my bible, you could use the textbook too

    I started revising for my ASs around February I'd say, but in retrospect I wish I had started a bit earlier because despite my success in Geography my other grades weren't as great!

    For unit 2 just learn a set of case studies, so for Rebranding you just need to know about a handful of areas that have been rebranded and know some facts and figures about them and make sure you can make some stuff up about an investigation you did Wish I could help with how to revise Crowded Coasts but I did Extreme Weather instead!

    Hi. I've got a mock on Tuesday for Unit1 of the Edexcel AS Geog course. I've been reviewing / re-writing notes, reading my textbook and answered some exam questions. What questions could I expect to appear in my 90 min mock?

    Anything you've covered I expect! Each section is usually worth between like 9-14 marks and includes 1 markers up to 6 markers... I'm not sure what else you want really!

    I did Geography, Biology, History and Physics at AS and got ABBD respectively (I suck at maths )

    And hm go over your case studies! For example there might be a question like "describe the impacts earthquakes have on urban areas", and since you've looked at your case study about earthquakes in San Francisco for example, you can use those impacts without it even being a case study question if you see what I mean?

    What do you predict will come up this year for Extreme weather?

    It's hard to tell without me going through all the past papers but I don't think the 15 marker will be on weather diaries, as that was on my paper last year... I'd revise your case study for how you'd investigate a type of extreme weather eg floods!

    The 10 markers are harder to predict, but don't expect management of drought as that was on my paper last year as well. Maybe there could be the causes/impacts/management of tropical storms?

    I don't understand albedo :c

    My understanding of it is this: Less sunlight is reflected by white ice, and more is absorbed by dark water. Water warms, this causes more ice to melt, lowering the albedo. The cycle repeats. Earth warms.

    So the albedo is lowered, but the process remains a POSITIVE feedback mechanism?

    The way I understand it is:
    -Ice as a high albedo - It reflects lots of solar energy as it is white
    -The ocean has a low albedo - It absorbs lots of solar energy as it is dark
    -As ice melts, there is more dark surface, so more solar energy is absorbed, so ice keeps melting and the ocean keeps warming.
    -The melting of ice lowers the area's natural albedo.

    It's called "positive" because it increases the change. So lets call the ice melting A, and the water warming B.

    A causes B, which in turn causes A, therefore increasing the original change, if that makes any sense?

    Learn your investigative case studies and do past papers!
