    Hi guys. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all! So I saw there was no geog thread for A2 geog this year so I made one. Feel free to ask questions and post whatever you like here as long as it is related to GEOG3. Please don't ask the same questions AGAIN AND AGAIN as it gets boring.
    And thought I'd let everyone know, I will be posting my notes on TSR throughout the year for the topics that I will be learning this year which are as follows:

    Plate Tectonics and Associated Hazards
    Weather and Climate and Associated Hazards
    World Cities
    Development and Globalisation

    I'm trying my hardest for an A* this year, hope 2017's paper has nice questions! Probably won't since I've just jinxed it hahaha
    Got my mock results and got an A* and while I'm really happy with that, problem with me is that I never get high level answers (always get like 4/7, 5/8, 7/10, 27/40 etc), I may run out of time in the real exam like I did last year, and the mock had questions I was strongest in which was lucky.
    Not to mention I don't like ecosystems at all and I can't remember any of the stats from any case study... lol

    oh well I think all I can do is just try my hardest... :P

    We have half of Contemporary Conflicts and Challenges left, but have finished both Tectonics and Cities. Not doing a 4th topic as teachers decided quality over quantity and essay questions are better for human geog.

    Let me know if you are doing any of those topics.

    What case studies are you doing for those?

    And with the 40 mark question what are you leaning towards? I'm think cities for that (because it is easy to embed examples and develop them in the essay, and there's only really 3 or 4 themes they could ask about) but that could mean answering an awkward 7 mark question for Conflicts. If multiculturalism comes up for the 40 mark then I may have a go at that however.

    I'm doing two/three, so Darfur, Gaza and West Bank, and then maybe Afghanistan. Also you have to know things about separatism so that is kinda an international conflict, if you study the one I'm doing which is Baasque Country. I think doing two is fine tbh, I'm going to know two really well so darfur and westb bank and then the others in a bit of detail. The good thing about conflict is that you can apply the same case studies to many different questions. It's all in the CGP revision guide, so if you have that it's really good for case studies.


    Also anyone else doing conflict there is a YouTube channel called crash course, which explains some of the conflicts really well and clearly. So just type into Google the conflict and it should come up

    Does anyone have any predictions for the questions that will come up concerning:
    Plate tectonics
    World cities
    Contemporary conflicts and challenges

    My teachers are really bad a saying what is likely to come up so anything your teachers/tutors have said to you concerning predictions would be super helpful!!

    Thanks

    I'm doing 3...Syria, Afghanistan and Darfur. Best to do more than one in case it comes up as a good 40 marker
