I wrote this in frustration at my revision for GCSE geography. Geography is my strongest subject, but I am failing to see how I will reach the A* due to the case studies we have to learn. I 100% believe we must learn real world applications, but is it really necessary to learn 50 pages of facts on the numbers dead in an earthquake etc?! Case study questions in OCR are not asked in context, so they're just testing who can learn the most statistics. Is it only me who feels we should be tested on understanding and application of geography (the SDME is a perfect example of this) not just factual recall?
