Is AS geography hard?
I dropped maths for geography. I kind of enjoyed and understood geography during GCSEs. I'm only doing it for one year then continuing with my other 3 A-levels.

Which exam board are you doing geography with?

You probably don't want to hear this but my school also do AQA Geog and all my friends got C's D's and E's despite being predicted really high The Geog teacher just said though it was down to not putting enough work in so you'll be fine. In the end it was the worst set of results ever for my school in any subject for geography last year

I did AS geog on AQA and it was very time consuming... There are a lot of things to learn/case studies, and the exam technique is not too difficult as long as you practice.

I was on Edexcel and thoroughly enjoyed unit 1 (big unit), but didn't like unit 2.

Most of it's just rote learning (I ended up getting 100% in this exam) - I can't recommend using mark schemes to make notes from enough (especially nearer exams). Same sorts of Qs come up every year. Examiner reports are good (especially the summaries hinting at what they want to examine in future papers).

As I said, there a bunch of Qs over the years with really good mark schemes to revise from. I'll attach a pic of the type I mean

AQA geography is not too hard but not easy as like GCSE there are a lot of case studies. it is definitely a fun subject though and the fieldwork is a good break away from written work

I did edexcel at GCSE and got 100ums in every paper- now doing AQA at AS and I'm finding there literally isn't a jump at all. (My easiest subject by far)

There's a lot of content but it's not that difficult. Make sure you memorize key facts in your case studies and know your processes for physical geography, it's definitely doable. I would recommend doing as many past papers as possible too
