    I'm currently studying GCSE geography specification wjec GCSE geography b and I got a c in my controlled assessment. To get an a in geography I have to get an a* in the exam which is worth 75%. How do I develop my points well so I can get an a* in the exam. And how should I revise the case studies so I remember them well.

    I would also recommend flash cards. Also trying linking your points together especially in 8 markers and 4 markers (if your doing AQA). This is the best way to get top makrs in these questions.

    I just make the points up in the exam.

    For example if an earthquake caused 7000 deaths and I can't remember the exact number. I'd write 'over 2000 deaths' were caused due to the earthquake. As you'd have a rough estimate at how many deaths were caused.

    I asked my teacher about this and she said its technically not wrong and examiners don't look that much into figures unless it's a bizarre figure.

    Nonetheless, I definitely will learn case studies inside out and I find making flashcards with KEY points helps the info stick in my brain.
