Does anyone have any revision tips? Especially for remembering case studies!

Also, would anyone who has already taken their GCSE exams say the A* grade in geography is hard to achieve? The grade boundaries seem quite agreeable.

Im doing my Geog exams soon too. Best way is to make mind maps for each case study, branching out to sub-topics in that case study and then those sub-branches need to branch out to names, numbers, causes, effects, solutions.

Thank you for the tip! what specification are you taking? Will you be doing a Decision Making paper? If so, do you have any tips on how to best prepare for that? That's the geography exam that I'm most anxious for !

WJEC.

For problem solving you'll need to know things such as pull/push factors (crime, jobs etc),and things like the 'Green Wall' but I think you can just use common sense for it b/c you're given options in the paper. Pretty sure theres no case study in it. Ask your teacher though (incase im wrong D

Thanks, I think in the specification I study we're given a case study to read over and make decision ons during the exam.

I'm doing the same exam board. Unit 1 + 2 + 3 as examination papers. Unit 4 - controlled assessment.
Unit 1 and 2: 6/8 topics, last 4 topics are options, you only choose 2 out of 4.
I've got mocks after Easter, probably get results by May but I think I can hit a high B too, I don't revise though, this one I will.
