Hey Everyone, this forum is for people to converse about expectations about the Unit 1 Geography AS exam and to help one each other out with any issues.

I believe that topics that could come up are migration flows for a 5 marker Q5 maybe and as well I think Arctic and/or Africa case studies will come up either for 5 markers or even 10/15 markers. Anything else to add please reply to the thread to let everyone know

I think you only have to know specifics if youre choosing to answer a 15 marker on them ( or unless they give you a multiple choice with figures) -sucks for me because I know NNOTTHINNGGGG D:

-on a side note, you always get to choose which 15 marker you do, right, im pretty sure you do

For my local area, as I live in Cambridge, I found some minor hazard examples such as storms, heavy snow, floods in 1998 and heavy winds etc. I haven't got details on any specific case studies just a couple of examples so I hope that will be enough!

They seem pretty similar to mine or just alternatives. For Bangladesh flooding I have facts about economy and why vulnerable, human causes of flooding and physical causes.

I haven't been doing many past papers, but if I have only the small answer questions as they are easier to mark myself. The 10/15 mark questions I have just gone through and planned what I would write then checked the mark scheme to see what sort of things they look for

I honestly haven't been doing past papers, just skimming through all the questions, answering them in my head then checking the mark scheme, which isn't great for answering skills when it comes to the 10/15 markers
