I am doing the AQA A specification and I have a mock exam soon on the topics:
Coasts, Population change, The Restless Earth and Changing Urban Environments

I'm finding it really difficult memorising so much information because I can't write notes on the topics like I usually do as I don't have any resource which has all the information I need. I have tried flashcards but I get bored of them easily and I find that mindmaps take too long.

So how do you revise geography?
And do you know any really good resources for the topics mentioned which can help me get a good grade?


P.S. sorry for the typo in the title :P

A slight variation on flash cards but try wiring down a key facts box for each case study.

I also do geography , but I do edexcel. I was in a similar position about resources but if you type into google "aqa A geography gcse revision guide pdf" or on those lines you'll get some great resources.
I found these for example: http://www.oaklands.hants.sch.uk/_si...F07DFC2C54.pdf
http://fhs.essex.sch.uk/students/rev...raphy-revision
http://www.chewvalleyschool.co.uk/Re...20Revision.pdf
https://internationalgeographer.file...guide_2012.pdf
If you search what you need, you'll probably find it. Some of these notes are really good and better than whats in a revision guide.
You could also do mindmaps with diagrams and different mind maps for case studies. Thats what I do with coloured pens.
Then just do past papers.

BBC Bitesize is very good for geography

Also im guessi g CGP book

Also ask your teacher for reosources we were given a booklet with all the theory 2months before our exams

Make sure you are learning and understand what you are learning. Just learn it and then teach it to yourself by memory or write it by memory. And Exam questions are very useful for geography find past papers,

also make sure you know all the case studies. ASK your teacher for a sheet will everything you need to know for each case study
