    How is everyone planning on revising for it? CIE is so stupid and the majority of case studies asked aren't even mentioned on the spec so what do you think you will do :///

    Won't deny it was tough but manageable. I think people should have explored a bit outwards and they might have had a clue about that.

    Online xD I had the same issue as you but I checked Edexcel's iGCSE equivalent and other places online and started working from there. Sometimes relying on CIE always isn't the best thing.

    Hey, I am sitting the exam this summer too. I had my geography mock last week and I have paper 2 next week. My paper 1 went great. However I do agree the case studies change. 2015 it was internal migration. Just do past papers, that is all you do for revision for this course to be honest. Do you have any tips for paper 2 and 4. I am more worried about those.

    We didn't do the 2015 paper for our mocks, our teacher made a paper from old papers of case studies we had already done so it wasn't a great way to practise

    I haven't looked at a skills paper but apparently we have to learn a lot of definitions and key terms so I guess I will revise them in detail but my mock for that is on Wednesday

    We don't have three papers... do you do a coursework substitute paper?

    Our mock was not 2015, it was 2013 but a different version. 2015 is available online (xtreme papers). Yeah we do paper 4:alternative to coursework and I think its better. We do the the field work , so your rivers, tourism and it helps with the exam. Paper 2 is quite challenging in the sense you do need to know your stuff (I realise now why they say revise all the topics instead of choosing your best 3 out of 6, cuzz they all crop up on paper 4 or 2.

    So, the exam is on the 3rd of May. Are you ready for it. Have you revised all the topics and themes and all the case studies to go with it?

    That's coz theres a new spec so the majority of these case studies would not come up in this years paper.

    I need to learn quite a bit to be honest like all the landform formations but I've been stuck on DT coursework for quite a while

    What topics do you think will come up. I hope tectonics and tourism come up. Do you guys think the paper will be easier cuzz we are the first year with this new format. Also, you know the case studies on 2016 spec, that's all we need to know right ?

    I think so, but some on the spec are really vague tbh and require you to think outside the statement given.... SMH something like 30 case studies and only 3 will crop up!

    When it says 'a country with a high dependant population ', do we need to know a country with a young population or do we just stick to ageing ?
