Hi guys,

I just wanted to say that I really don't think trying to predict topics/questions is a good idea (I did that for the G1 exam when I re-took the G1 module last year as I was short of time to revise, and I was wrong, so therefore completely unprepared! I still got an A somehow, but it was definitely not worth the stress! ).

However, to answer your question, last year the G1 paper had tectonics on it, so it's possible that rivers is slightly more likely to come up this time. But again, that is purely a guess!
I sat G1 last year and agree that rivers are more likely to come up as I noticed that WJEC tend to alternate between tectonics/hydro. Good luck!

I definitely started revising too late and I haven't started g2 but for g1 I think river management is something I need to go over, and I'm not keen on the climate change theme at all so I'll have a stressful night how about you?

Yeah, 2014 and 2015 had tectonics I'm not good at hydrology!

I did much better in G1 than I did in G2. I find it easier to directly answer the question with physical Geog. The tectonics section was fine just labelling and explaining the formation of the Mid Atlantic Ridge which I find no problem as it's just memorising, I find it the same at A2. I bet they will be looking for up to date knowledge of rivers and flooding especially given the recent events!

Good luck!

I have learned Climate change really well - as it's guaranteed to come up! Hydrology and the skills question is just an eh, for me :/

I agree, physical geography makes more sense to me than the human geography, plus I personally find the physical side much more interesting. I'm so glad I completed my Geography A Level last year though, it sucked the soul out of me towards the end!

Fair enough, I bet it was a relief to complete it! Did you find G3 or G4 more difficult?

It was! G4 was definitely harder for me. We had to rush through a lot of it, and I couldn't find many resources for it. I tried to use the official G4 revision guide book, but that seemed to be mostly factual/case study-based, rather than theoretical, if that make sense? Like it would've been good if I wanted to supplement my class notes, but I didn't really have many class notes to begin with, especially for sustainable cities!

Thank you. That's a great help!

It's interesting that you say it would have been beneficial to learn all the supplementary material for G4.

I know predicting isn't the best but I'm struggling to decide what to revise more and I've been concentrating more on tectonics because I prefer it

Yeah, using case studies and examples helps you gain a lot of marks! Another tip (which you probably already know) - make sure to explain any key terms you use (you don't get marks just for using them, you need to say what they mean too)
