    I can't seem to revise this subject. There's too many case studies. Any useful websites? or tips? I'm doing the AQA B exam.

    Yeah, geography can seem very intimidating.
    Break up the revision into sections to make it more manageable.
    For case studies, you should learn the base outline to start off with and then build up by learning more and more detail. I would go through and highlight the important parts of the case study to start off with. Then use different colour pens for perhaps different sections of the case study, or perhaps using two different colours to define the base outline and the detail.
    Would recommend an app called 'quizlet.' You create the flashcards and then you can play different games or have tests to make sure that you know the content.
    Good luck.

    You're in Year 10, right? In Year 10, I was getting between C and U grades (the U was in my mock in Year 10). Now, I'm looking at As so it's all okay; I crammed on the day of my Physical Geography exam, for AQA A, and didn't do too bad (I don't think).

    Also, don't stress about case studies; simply memorise a few key figures, relate to the impacts of these figures (e.g. x number of deaths may have led to the outbreak of cholera) and do whatever else really.

    I get C's for Geography even when I revise
    And thanks,

    I've already got the app Quizlet and it's really helpful and thank you for the idea of using different colour pens to write down the key points. Should I revise the concepts firsts though or the case studies?

    Revise the content first. Then revise the case studies. You need to have a thorough understanding of the content so that you can apply it to the case studies. Even though the questions about the case studies are worth more marks, I would recommend learning the content first so that you can make links etc. It will also allow you to understand it better. Good luck
