    My teacher suggested to us that there might be skills questions like how you would construct choropleth maps and any alternatives for representing the data in the maps they've given. This exam is so frustrating though, no idea what it'll ask!!

    I have a feeling this may come up too! Its just strange to have so many chloropleth maps which I doubt will all be linked to an essay style question! It is a pain though, did you do health issues for AS?

    It is quite interesting tbf they couldve picked a worse topic to do it on, i just hate the fact the questions can be so vague! We did a mock paper not sure what year, for belo monte dam and i wouldve never guessed that half of the questions would come up from looking at the resource booklet!

    Hi Guys, I was just looking through the photocopy of the GEOG4B booklet and my teacher has forgot to put in ITEM 3, so two whole pages are missing!!!

    I was wondering if someone could send me this item, like you could scan it in and send it me as pictures via message, I would really like to look over the whole booklet and this item seems like a key part which is missing!!!

    any help would be appreciated!!

    Put this on last year's thread: hope its of help to those doing the 2015 paper!

    A few tips:

    Knowing the AIB thoroughly, understanding the main issues involved and having the ability to adapt your own knowledge to answering the question, including your own analysis and facts in your exam essays, is the key to high marks. For my Nepal exam, I did stacks of extra research on demographic statistics, development statistics, projects other charities have done, news articles etc etc. The pre-release is only a guide; you have to make sure you DON'T copy word for word from it although you can draw upon it occasionally.

    Make a good set of notes structured around the AIB with reference to extra research. You can get your own information from the sources suggested in the ZigZag booklet, Wikipedia, internet searches, books, course texts - basically anything which is related to the topic. You'll realise as you go that the issue chosen by the exam board cuts across many of the concepts in the A Level. Doing your own research is the only way to develop the synoptic understanding of the issue that you need.

    Note: there are are usually shorter questions based on more 'directed' items such as data presentation, stats, fieldwork or directed research. These should be easier to identify and plan for as they are usually clearly referenced in the AIB itself. Even if no questions based wholly on these 'directed' items come up, make sure you include them in the exam paper somewhere - e.g. I brought in the photographs referenced in the AIB to an essay on development in Nepal.

    Geog 4B is more about geographical understanding than revision per se. As I did very detailed research on the concepts and structured that research around the AIB I was able to build up a very good knowledge of the core themes before the exam, which I could then draw upon as part of the argument in my essay. The exam essays are more about setting up an argument and justifying yourself (with that justification supplemented by your own facts) rather than basic regurgitation of the facts themselves.

    Good luck!

    How is everyone doing revision for this exam? I've been revising physics for the whole of last week so I'm going to dedicate this week of the break for geography. Haven't given much thought about the booklet until now because our teacher hasn't gone over it with us yet

    Does anyone have any idea on the significance of all the maps? I agree with the 4 underlying themes but it's really difficult to know what questions would be directed upon them. Do you think that it might just be skills questions on the maps? They seem to just be establishing where the population lives and why...
