Good luck for your exams!

Print out the specification and go through all the topics, so you are familiar with the content on the exam. Then, do some past papers that the exam boards have posted on the website. You'll be familiar with the content and questions.

Make sure you know every single case study because they're the questions with the most marks!!! If you dont know them then you're missing out on a big number of marks
Btw, how are you finding the SDME paper?

Ah yeh, i know the case studies are super important i'm trying to cover as many as i can but primarily one of each , medc for earth quake, ledc for volcanoes so i'll work on those very efficiently. And the SDME paper i find really easy like in our mocks which we had around December time last year i found it decent, so if i revised more i could've done even better.

That's the thing they either cover most of it or barely any of it so you should try focus on the SDME paper outside of school, or simply do your own revision and when you have a geography lesson ask the teacher if you could revise independently, it should help. But i'm sure you'll get the hang of it, personally i think its easier then the other paper but you need to make sure that your reasoning skills are precise. You should look at sdme example answers.
