Could anybody give me ways of studying for geography i've tried the usual methods like reading through text books, making notes, creating flashcards, none of them seem to help. I'm aiming for an a minimum for my geo and I've only had one B ever since i started doing GCSE geo. So any advice would be greatly appreciated

learn your case studys inside out... they are your golden key to gain good marks and always think what the social, economic and environmental impact is when answering a question... this means that is key to be used. hope tht helps

Completely agree with the above! Also, try to look at past papers and practice doing the questions that you slip up on. It might just be the case of you losing marks on questions with lower marks, and you will be able to see topic areas which you're struggling on.

Well I got A* in geography by memorising the revision guide and having a solid understanding of what I was learning.
But since you've already made notes on the topic, I don't really know what you're doing wrong.
But I could probably give more help if I knew what part of the paper are you losing marks on? So are you running out of time? the longer-answers questions? silly mistakes?

Just keep going through your case studies and in terms of the theory I managed to condense it all onto four pieces of A4 paper, there isn't actually that much to learn it's just about making sure you've done the preparation.

Look at the topics and find out which ones you don't do as well in then revise them and learn case studies as they are 8 marks each (if you do aqa).
Good luck!

I lose marks on the higher mark questions so like 6 markers

With higher mark questions you should think about how you can slip in some form of case study, if you have one, even if it doesn't ask for one. They can help you to prove your point. Also, make sure you use lots of connectives and justify what you say with 'because' etc.
