    I always get my students to look at those cross modular questions (section C) by setting up a planning grid with Physical and Human on the side and Social, Economic and Environmental along the top and getting them to look at the title trying to put ideas in those boxes to help them plan a good coverage - of course if you add in LEDC and MEDC variations as well it can add to the complexity but its a start anyway...!

    I would just draw up a 3x2 grid with say 4 lines in each square and try to think of 4 key words to put in each one! That's a start ... then you can get on to planning in whatever way you find helpful (spider diagrams, bullet points then re-numbered etc) but at least the grid reminds you to be cross modular - the key to a good answer and getting more marks!

    The grid is a good idea. Sustainability is evidently important in the cross section unit, what other topics are useful to revise?
