    A good place to start would be to collate all of the information you obtained during your fieldwork and identify how it links to what's on the specification. A good thing about the fieldwork questions is that the mark scheme is very vague because different schools go to different places.

    For example, we went to Hull and I'm identifying the different mechanisms involved in the rebranding strategies and the players involved.

    Hoping for crowded coasts they give us conflicts or development over time and for rebranding they give us one on diversification or a rural area

    The fieldwork markscheme is usually quite vague because lots of school go to different areas. Therefore, you can usually make facts and statistics up as long as they sound believeable!

    37.5 Minutes per section (a mark a minute)

    So 10 minutes for 10 marks

    15 minutes for 15 marks

    10 marks usually need 3 clear peel (point,evidence, explain, link) paragraphs including an example in each paragraph

    15 marks is about the fieldwork you investigated talking about primary/secondary research or results and conclusions, or data presentation.

    For field work questions, just talking about generic primary and secondary methods but just relating them to you're chosen area where you did field work is fine, and presenting they just look for powerpoints graphs etc and why this can be useful to show results

    there is always an option as the exam board does not know where every school decides to carry out their fieldwork

    TIP: For the F&R questions (15 marks), there's nothing stopping you from making up fictional results, as long as they sound realistic. Although I know most of my results, I may need to make up stats on the spot.

    Hey, quick question- what happens if didn't do any field work so a student missed the trip etc? Can they still do the exam? I'm a private candidate but I'm trying to understand if the fieldwork is necessary for me to do the exam. If it's necesary, I'm thinking of asking the geography teacher at school if I could join year 12 when they go on their next trip but then again I realised the specification changes this year in September. I wonder if fieldwork is essential for unit 4 also? If so I may have a chance to go with my friends.

    If you haven't done any fieldwork I'm not sure if you will be able to sit the exam because as far as I'm aware your centre must provide the exam board with fieldwork information. That being said, I don't know if this affects private students so you'll have to check with your school's geography department. Regarding unit 4, we are currently studying that at school at the moment and are not going on any fieldwork trips. But any fieldwork you do go on could help you find information regarding the pre-release!

    Oh, I see.
    So for unit 2, fieldwork is essential but for unit 4 it is good to do but not essential. Thank you! I'm going to speak to the geography department once I get back. My fear though is that the specification is changing so the next year 12 class may be doing an entirely different spec. Their trip may be irrelevant to what I am doing (not sure if this is possible, maybe any trip might be useful) but if this is the case, I may have to forget about doing geography.

    Yes in the unit 2 exam there will be a specific question about your fieldwork, so unless you're very good at bluffing for an entire question you should require about joining a trip. As far as I'm aware the geography spec is not changing until next year, as there some year 13's who were told to pick up an AS doing geography. So that means that next year they will still be on the old spec
