    Complete and comprehensive list of the case studies required for Edexcel GCSE Geography Specification A.

    The Edexcel site is of no use. Can any one assist?
    If you look through the specification you should find a table with everything you need to know on it...

    Right Class, I've been through my book collecting facts and figures for that A* and I started by making a list of all the dates that we need to know from the case studies (those studying Managing Hazards and Tourism as opptional units). For anyone who wants, here they are:
