    There are meant to be lots of case studies you are supposed to know for AQA but I wouldn't worry too much about them. Knowing specific figures is integral as it proves to the examiner you know what you are talking about. If in the exam you forget the secondary effects of a specific case study just talk about it generally instead- you do not need a fact/figure for every single point. You are not expected to know every case study in intrinsic detail, just to be able to pull out a few facts and figures to support your answer. Instead of going about attempting to memorise every case study go over the basic knowledge that you can apply to any case study. Hope I have helped!

    Thank you! I started to panic when I saw how much detail things like the revision guides go into for each of the case studies
