    Hi everyone,

    I've attached my notes for the Glacial Landforms and their Management topic for A2 WJEC Geography. Although I was with WJEC, I figured these notes might come in handy for other exam boards too!

    I hope you guys might find them useful

    I've also got several example essays for this topic if anyone would like them, they cover:

    Opportunities and limitations for human activity presented by the northward shift of the permafrost limit
    How glacial processes and landforms impact on human activity
    How glaciers operate as a system
    How management strategies in glacial environments provide protection from the impacts of glacial processes
    The processes responsible for the production of one or more glacial landforms
    The role of erosional processes in the development of glacial landforms
    Why glacial environments are important

    I'm glad you like them gabbiw! I got a B grade overall (I did well for the unit 3 exam which I got an A in, but I struggled with the sustainability module which brought my overall grade down to a middle-ish B).

    Are there any essays in particular which you would like, or would you like me to put up all of them?

    Sure, I'll attach them here

    I'm afraid I don't have many tips for G3 and G4, as I wasn't entirely sure how to revise for them either! My tactic was to write as many model essays as I could for different questions using the mark schemes (even though the mark schemes are pretty useless in my opinion!), and hope that some of the questions I did essays for came up in the real exam!

    I have a list of all of the past exam questions for the glaciation module, I can upload that too if that would help? At least, I think I have all of them haha!
