    Im studying restless earth, coastal zone and the living world for the exam.
    What are your prediction for the upcoming questions, personally I reckon that there will be a vast majority of questions relating to earthquakes and super volcanoes, not alot about fold mountains.

    Hey I am doing Coastal Zone and living world.

    for geography 8mark questions for living World Poor dessert hasn't been asked since 2010 and TDW hasn't been asked since 2012. So those are more likely to come up than Rich dessert and Rainforests however this isn't guaranteed so revise every case study

    Also for coasts Salt marsh case study hasnt come up as much as the others.

    AQA legally have to ask about a topic atleast once every 3years.

    That's the closest I have come to predictions

    I am studying the Restless Earth, coastal zone and water on the land.

    Our teacher reckons that there could be a question on super volcanoes, especially as this is quite a new topic in the syllabus - e.g. Explain what the likely worldwide effects of a super volcano eruption would be...

    Also as previously mentioned a salt marshes case study question might be quite likely...keeping revising Keyhaven!

    Yeah its hardest out of the 3 for me, especially things like mass movement and depositional land forms. My revision is going great for geography I'm nearly read to start past papers

    I'm doing restless earth, ice on the land and weather.
    For restless earth they always seem to ask a 6/8 mark question about the effects of an earthquake. Maybe one about how a volcano is formed?? Responses to a tsunami could be there.
    Sometimes they ask questions where you have to apply your knowledge to a different case study (only worth 4 marks max, so just general info needed, really)

    I'm doing Restless Earth, Water on Land and the Coastal Zone

    My predictions include -
    Restless Earth - Supervolcanoes (probably a four marker on the formation and the 8 marker on global effects?), or earthquakes in a rich and poor part of the world.
    Water On Land - Water deficit (hasn't come up for a long time) perhaps the 8 markers on a case study about an area that shares their water with another city OR the effects of building a resvoir.
    Coastal Zone - formation of landforms or coastal habitats?

    basic general facts are needed for 4 marks on eight mark questions, so just remember a few case study specific to help get others, is my teachers advice. Numbers don't need to be accurate just use ballpark figures. Could try and use certain facts/case studies to link topics together (I've been able to do that with weather and ice on the land)

    Restless earth might have how a volcano is formed-composite or shield. Could also include something about effects of earthquake in MEDC compared to LEDC. Always seems to be a question of responses to something

    i've got 10 overall (5 for restless earth, 3 for weather and 2 for ice on the land). I'm just learning the most basic details, because its more than likely going to prompt me to remember other details, so for effects i'm learning two primary/two secondary, responses i'm doing the same etc. but then for things like formations, i'm remembering key words from each part, which easily link together

    samee, I was screwing before the exam thinking it was going to be hard as hell but it was pretty good. I feel like the examiners were generous with the questions
