Hey guys! I'm sitting this tomorrow also! All of tonight, I've written up a list of the case studies we've been given (for HT) in a lil' booklet given to us by the teachers. I've designed question sheets for them so you can find them attached plus an answer sheet for all of them too! I'll be uploading them to TSRs resource bank as well as TES also. Good luck to you all! Best wishes!

Does anyone have a way of remembering the butler model case studies (Blackpool or Benidorm)?
I've managed to remember the stages, just not what happens at each stage for each case study.... :/

This is for Blackpool as that's the one I remember:

Exploration - only the very wealthy could afford to go there. Few visitors. Unspoiled area.
Involvement - rail links began to form, people began to take the trains in and some basic accommodation began to be built.
Development - visitor numbers soar. Blackpool now considered 'tourist destination'.
Consolidation - 850,000 - 3 mil visitors - attractions like Blackpool Pier built and Blackpool Tower in 1894. Most people work in tourism industry.
Stagnation - Blackpool viewed as spoilt so visitor numbers decrease.
Decline - Visitors dropped because place seen as rundown.
Rejuvenation - 7 million more visitors. 2 billion invested. Redevelopment of brownfield sites. New shopping center, art center, upgraded hotels, new roads, houses and car parks.

It prob won't come up though as it was on the 2014 paper. But you never know.

For the deindustrialization question, is writing about less public services and that less money will be around in that area count as marks? Also, is talking about how it makes the place quieter and as a result more wildlife would thrive anther mark or so? Thanks

What did everyone think? I thought the questions were rather sneaky, many of the more minor case studies (eden project, south wales etc) came up in the 6 markers which was fine but not so great if you only briefly touched on them. For the youthful population question, I put China?! I don't think we've done any others on that. Also, the 6 marker in a tourist's world was tricky.

Overall ok, pretty tricky at certain points but hopefully I did well

I thought it was alright, the six marker on political tourism was hard i didnt know what to write for six marks! and for the youthful population i did the gambia, but it was hard too

I didn't do a case study for the youthful population one cause I assumed that the case study Q was the one before that. Anyway, I think it was kinda tricky but still good in places. I think overall though, the physical and skills papers were better and much nicer. Maybe it's because human geography is more so common sense.

This exam made up for the lack of case studies in unit 2. The whole thing was full of them, even the 2 markers.

Unit 2 case studies were so easy to remember in comparison to these... This one did miss out a few big ones such as bracknell, norwich, japan; I just feel sorry for the people in my class who theorised that this one wouldn't have any case studies either so didn't revise them.

Depends on the actual marks (high B? Low D?) but you will either get a C or a D

unit 2 and 3 exams have been so different to any past papers I've done! Strangely I found population to be the hardest topic in the tests overall when usually it's my best :/
