    Does anyone know any common topics which appear on the AQA Geography A human AND physical paper?
    Also, is there a website where I can find older past papers - pre- 2012?
    Many thanks

    Look at all the past papers you can get a hold of and make a list of the topics that keep coming up, your common topics, but you should to revise on everything though.

    Revise everything because exam papers can be out of the ordinary sometimes to what you predict

    Seeing as the 2015 paper was fairly similar to the 2011 paper for restless earth, I would say that the questions from the 2012 paper are likely to reappear (Comparing earthquakes in an LEDC or MEDC, or one of the earthquakes on its own may be likely). I also think that for Water, flooding case studies could come up, possibly as a comparison. Ice I think is unlikely to have tourism in alpine areas, as this has come up around 4 times, but formation of avalanches or the case study of a retreating glacier is more likely. But then they could always throw a curveball in all or some of the topics and ask something completely different.

    The predictions for restless earth are earthquake features, measuring earthquakes, LEDC earthquake and tsunamis, they have all been worked out from what's been on the past exams

    Thanks for expressing an interest and appreciation for the work of others in their spare time merely to help. I advocate that if one didn't find the prediction of great utility to either not say anything or search somewhere else.
    As far is content is concerned, delta's ARE very much on the AQA Spec as of 2014 which is the exam we sit.
    I don't know what's unrealistic about the restless earth marker. Tsunami's has been an absent topic since 2013 I believe.
    Please don't address someone as mate prior to making comments that disrespect the time and effort they have gone to to try and help others.
    I wish you the best of luck in your exam on Tuesday!

    Not to be rude or anything, the predictions were really helpful, but Deltas aren't on the spec, at least not AQA A GCSE.

    The landforms you need to know are:

    Landforms resulting from erosion – waterfallsand gorges; landforms resulting from erosionand deposition – meanders and ox-bow lakes;landforms resulting from deposition – leveesand flood plains.
