    Okay so for Energy, I'm using the CGP case studies...
    For a question on energy mix, could we talk about Norway and Chad (seen in the CGP books), because although it's more energy management there's still a bit about their energy mix... Or would we have to use UK and France, or UK and China for a question on energy mix...
    I was told that we need to know the energy mix for 3 different countries. I learnt france (mainly nuclear) uk (gas and other dossil fuels) and iceland ( hydroelectric power)

    Just been looking at last years grade boundaries for Geog 1 and for an A it's only 66/120?!! Think it was like 59 for a B..
    So just to give hope to anyone all you need for a B is like 15/30ish on each question. So hope this year they remain similar

    Can someone give me a detailed explanation of how entrenched meanders are formed?
    (I'm guessing you mean a form incised meanders?)

    They form as a result of rejuvenation, as when the base level drops the graded profile creates a "knickpoint" to try and achieve a smooth, concave graded profile. This creates an increase of gravitational potential energy and vertical erosion, not necessarily in the upper course. This increased vertical erosion creates a downcutting effect on meanders and causes them to become deeper rather than wider. Entrenched meanders are very deep and not very wide, due to a lot of vertical erosion and very little lateral erosion, whereas ingrown meanders are slightly deep but wider, as a result of less vertical erosion and slightly more lateral erosion, as the rejuvenation occurs at a slower pace.

    Hope this helps

    I was looking through past papers and I had noticed entrenched meanders haven't been mentioned but incised meanders has been mentioned .Thank you so much, good luck for geog 1 tomoro

    I also did Mexico to USA, but we didnt cover much on it. However there are good videos on YT if you want to do a bit of last min revision.

    It's not in the AQA specification or subject content to know one let alone multiple migration case studies. Of course they may be questions on migration, and it's useful to back up your facts with statistics (so in a way, the more case studies, the better), but they'll be no questions asking for two case studies of migration.

    Our Sixth Form have predicted Fluvio-Glacial OR Antarctica for the 15 Marker (Cold Environments)
    They have the pre-release paper for y13 Unit 4B issue evaluation and it's on fracking - the have noticed a common pattern between y13 papers and y12 papers so they think there could be some mention of fracking in Energy Section (They are aware its not on the spec but that means nothing when it comes to exam boards)
    They think the Population 15 marker could be population indicators??
    And 15 Marker for Rivers, their bets are on Rejuvenation.

    Hope this helps anyone

    Fluvioglacial and Erosional features may be included in short answers ( Moraines and Peri were on last year) 15 marker may be on Antartica or Tundra

    could you write 15 marks on that though? there's nothing for chemical and just four for mechanical...
