Hey,

Does anyone have any advice on how to get an A* in edexcel geography?
Is it hard to get an A* in the actual examination?

Also, do you have to use obscure case studies that not many other candidates would use for an A*, or is that just a myth?

Any help would be appreciated

I need an A* too! I think you'll be marked on any case studies if you use them in context but idk lol.
I really don't know what I'm doing this year, especially for Unit 4! :')
Anyway, Unit 3 I would suggest learning 2 or 3 in really good detail.

I got full UMS in unit 1 at AS, I'd advise practicing the 10 and 15 mark questions in timed conditions, because that's what I struggled with. The edexcel textbook is pretty much all I revised from

Aha me neither, it's okay! I feel like unit 3 is going to be my strong point, I have no idea what's going on with unit 4 at the moment :')

Raw marks 61/70 for the A* which is 72/80 UMS - difficult but not impossible. Anyone doing tectonics?
