    Hi, I don't do geography but I know how you feel. I get straight A*s in class but I sometimes get Fs in my mocks in exam conditions because I panic. I know this is easy to say but DO NOT PANIC. Panicking will only make it worse. My top tip is to use what you know. Read the question carefully and if you do not know the answer, relate it to something you do know and manipulate that information. Get a good night's sleep and get up in the morning refreshed and ready for your exam. I am sure you will do well, good luck!!!

    Jkjk :lol: make flashcards about your case studies and colour code them so it's easier to memorise which facts belong to which case study?

    Well considering you have taken the subject for three years, I am sure you know something. Honestly, it is too late to do anything about it now so don't stress yourself out and try your best. Good luck :yy:

    Imo it is not the time to make a lot of revision cards and posters because you have less than a day left to prepare.

    I would go over each specification point and find the corresponding page in your revision guide and try absorb as much material as possible.

    (Btw, please put a specific title to this thread because it is a bit vague )

    This absolutely.

    I do have to wonder though if you need a C then how you managed to do no revision considering youve had a whole year at least.

    If youve absorbed some of your course, then you can probably still get a C following the above. Its importnat you answer the question and pace yourself.
