    Magmatic differentiation, Al2SiO polymorphs, contact metamorphism and deep marine basin environments are my predictionsBut lets be honest it could be anything....:bawling:

    Same, but also Glacial environments and diagenesis

    Hi guys! I did this exam in 2014 and got an A in it (plus an A overall for my Geology A Level), and I was wondering if there were any topics for this exam that you need help understanding? I'd be happy to explain anything if you have any last minute queries, and I just thought I'd ask

    Hey
    my main struggle is just remembering all the types of rock with descriptions and then the environment graphic logs. Any tips to help remember them ?
    thanks

    Hello!

    For the rock descriptions, I found that writing down a list of which minerals were in each rock helped me to learn them better. Also practice drawing cross sections of each rock (particularly the sedimentary ones), because you might be asked to do that in the exam.

    For the graphic logs, I would definitely learn the ones for deltaic sequences and marine evaporite deposits, as I'd say those are the most likely sequences to come up in the exam. Again, practice drawing them out because you might be asked to do that in the exam
