    I did the food security unit but I found it really helpful to do research online about my topic. The Guardian is a really helpful website with loads of useful articles. Before your exam try writing out paragraphs of the report and giving them to your teacher to mark. Sorry if this isn't much help :/

    Finallyyyy, someone answered! Thank you so much!

    I've been doing a lot of online research since i've started looking up case studies. There's a lot of information from a tonne of sources- one of my case studies has a maximum of 5 sources. :/ Is this too much to reference?

    Thank you again!

    Aha that's okay. It is a lot of references but you don't need to remember all of them and you don't need to write down the entire web address. Make sure to have varied sources such as books newspaper articles, websites etc. So the topic I did was Life on the Margins and I know I used www.fao.org.uk a lot but instead of writing the whole address I just put [FAO] in brackets next to a quote. Learn the important sources and make sure that the sources you are using are reliable. Don't go using wikipedia

    Hope this helps

    How did you revise A2 geography, especially when balancing unit 3 and unit 4?
    What techniques did you use?

    Thank you and I hope you're having a good time at university, if you are lol =)

    Mind maps are a wonderful thing!! When doing unit 4 don't do too much research. Only find out the things you really need to know. When you get your steer for unit 4 write come up with some questions that may appear in the exam and then write paragraphs and get your teacher to mark them. Once you've perfected a paragraph learn it so when you get to the exam all you need to do is adapt to fit the question. Use a diagram when you can and always always link back to the question whether it's unit 3 or 4. I always struggled with a level geography but in the end unit 4 was the best unit for me. I got E's and U's in all my other units but aced a B with unit 4. It won't be as bad as you think. Just keep calm
