Hey, so is anyone doing this exam on Tuesday? What topics are you doing for it? I'm studying Restless Earth, Ice on the Land and the Coastal Zone. Any predictions on 8 markers which you think might come up ?

How confident are you? Geography is one of my better subjects but I know the tests can be sometimes difficult :P.

I'm doing those topics too! I don't feel very confident, haven't really learned my case studies yet! How much detail do you think you need to know for an A*?

Same! Thank god we have this weekend xD. I also need to go through the case studies :/. I usually get A*s in geography because a lot of it is just common sense and I think you need to go in quite a bit of detail, if you have the CGP revision guide (or any) just go through and pick out the really important bits. I did the physical 2014 for my mock paper and managed to get an A* without even using case studies (but I learnt the rest of the content really well).

Which topics are you worried for most? Ice on the land I find more difficult :/.

I actually find Ice on the Land easiest! I think in general I'm just worried about the case studies but then I know I have to revise the rest of it cause in my mocks I focused too much on them and didn't really learn enough of the other stuff! Also I'm kinda stressing cause at the weekend I have to revise for my English lit as well and yeah

I'm doing similar topics for my exam, instead that I'm taking it in Denmark as an IGCSE and not the UK.

Case studies perhaps?

At our school we studied three so we have to answer three in the exam. Are you sure you're not with a different exam board?

Yeah, they haven't come up yet- I'm really hoping it's on earthquakes and volcanoes though, they're the easier ones xD. Knowing examiners though, they probably won't make it that easy .
