Paper 1--2nd May
Paper 2--10th May
Paper 4--6th June

Anyone else taking this course? What questions are you guys hoping for in Paper 1? For Theme 1 I'm likely gonna answer the population question, Theme 2 I want climate and natural vegetation and Theme 3 tourism has always seemed a fairly easy choice. Don't want food production though!

Also, did anyone do Component 3 (coursework)? What's it like? I'm happy to do Paper 4 instead because it's the least challenging from the 3 exams in my opinion, but I'm just curious.

This is my first exam this year besides French Speaking, with Paper 1 2 weeks before my first non-geography paper. I got a good A* in the mock so I'm fairly confident.

Any of you guys need any help?

What part of theme 2 is your strongest? And what sort of questions do you have about rivers and coasts--I'll try and answer them as best I can.

hey, I'm doing this course - my bets are for theme 2 'rivers and plate tectonics' because they haven't come up in two years and for theme 3 'tourism, environment and food production' because they can mix two topics together' - I'm just revising those xx

coasts most likely wont come up. its going to be either plate tectonics, rivers or climate. and my strongest for theme 2 is plate tectonics but if it does not come up im screwed.

Can someone explain the lower course/upper course of a river thing? Like about vertical erosion and stuff please. Also how can we revise for Paper 2 and 4? Paper 4 is common sense to be honest...

This website is amazing for paper 4 - you do actually need to know stuff for it as it may ask you about equipment etc. greenfieldgeography.wikispaces.c om

In the upper course of the river, water has a low velocity. It is the part of the river which is highest above sea level; as a result, vertical erosion occurs here and causes the upper course to have a steep gradient.

In the lower course of the river, water has a high velocity. It is the part of the river which is at sea level or just above it; as a result, lateral erosion occurs here instead of vertical erosion and causes the lower course to be wider than the upper course. It also has a greater depth than the upper course.

Anyone correct me if I'm wrong.

Looks about right, thanks a lot! What topics are you hoping for? I want:

Theme 1: Population
Theme 2: Weather
Theme 3: Energy

Too bad I won't get these (except population) as they were all there in the June 2016 paper ffs...

Agreed, but the water case study is kinda tricky - I have Lesotho for that. Plate tectonics is easy, but I feel like they can ask you a lot of questions on it. Also can someone explain mangrove swamps in more detail, the textbook didn't really cover it so well...

pick out key points and tbh some stuff is common sense like what problems can overpopulation cause: busy roads, over crowded schools, no enough resources for everyone, more pollution etc.

Every past paper from 2010 is useful so I wouldn't just rely on 2016...

Just skip out any questions on weathering from other papers. The syllabus is mainly the same otherwise.
