    Hi guys,

    I'm really struggling with my A2 Geography work. I got a C in AS; I'm going to retake paper 2 as I did really badly. By the end of my A Levels, I need to achieve at least a B (my national target grade is an A) in Geography in order to get into my chosen Uni.

    The problem is that I keep getting D grades in all of my assessments and I'm barely getting any feedback. I've had 4 assessments this year, I got a B in one of them and a D in the rest of them.

    I've been looking into personal tutoring, the thing is: I know the content, I just don't understand how to write the exam answers. I feel like it would be better to talk to an actual examiner. My teacher isn't too great, and by that I mean I've reported him various times to the curriculum manager and he doesn't even seem phased. He never gives me feedback and all he says is "you need to revise more". I revise a lot, I just don't understand what to put in my exam answers.

    However, I'm not going to let a shabby teacher ruin my chances of getting into my chosen University, which is why I need your help and advice. How would I go about contacting a proper examiner in order to get advice on how to write my answers?

    Have any of you done (and excelled) in A2 Edexcel Geography? The part I'm struggling with at the minute is the Geographical Investigation, which I am doing about culture.

    If any of you could help me out, let me know please.

    Thanks guys!
