    I hear most people stay away from the world city 40 marker as it's usually the most challenging on the GEOG3 paper and for that reason I ask, is there any point learning all the case studies for it if I'm definitely not going to do it? I just feel if I'm not going to do it then I might as well prioritise tectonics and conflicts case studies for 40 markers and focus on the more general material for world cities. Is this a good idea or should I learn it anyway?

    Are you doing AQA exam board? Because the way that paper is set is that you'd not have to do a 40 mark question for World cities, and in my case it would be for Weather and Climate. Double check with your lecturer. But in relation to case studies, nearly every question on the exam paper will be based on case studies so...in truth...yes you will need to learn your world cities' case studies. The 10 markers and whatnot require you to know additional specific references. So yes, you will need to learn them anyway.

    Hope this helps!
