Any ideas to which case studies will appear on the physical geography paper 😨😨😨
im not sure what exam board you are doing :/ but for WJEC im doing WATER, TECTONICS and CLIMATE CHANGE for the physical side

here are the case studies i got:

WATER:

Flooding and management - Boscastle (2004) and Bangladesh (yearly floods)
Living by a river landform and tourism - Niagara Falls

TECTONIS:

Volcano - mount St Helens, USA (1980) and mount Pinatubo, Phillipines (1991)
Earthquakes - Kobe, Japan (1995) and Izmit, Tukey (1999), if you forgot, just use Nepal which is a recent event in LEDC

Reasons for living by an Earthquake prone zone - California fault line
Reasons for living by a volcanic active zone - Mount st Helens

CLIMATE CHANGE:

The main problem of climate change - Arctic
MEDC being affected by climate change - Netherlands and UK
LEDC being affected by climate change - Africa (name any country there) and Bangladesh

Managing climate change internationally and locally and individually - Kyoto protocol, Japan and Bedzed sustainable community, UK along with Boris bikes and congestion fees in London, Public transports and using electricity appropiately in a home

Disadvantages AND advantages of climate change on a country - the UK or France



Just for my revision purpose i'll list the human geography study cases too so you can ignore this part xD

Population:

Rural to Urban - The UK (lets say somewhere in Wales to London) and Ghana or South Africa

Decreasing population - China's one child policy (1979) and India's education for women along with sanitation and contraception and better health care.
Increasing population - Singapore 3 or more policy

GLOBALISATION:

Multinational company - Nestle, Apple, Primark
Trade between primary and manufactored products - LEDC, India and Kenya for primary products. UK and USA or Japan for manufactored products.
Trade - FairTrade
Benefits and problems of Globalisation on the world and some countries like - India (Coca Cola) and China (Mcdonalds)
Benefits and problems of braindrain (should be in population, not sure) - Africa to UK
Trading Blocs - EU
