Typical me has left revision for Geography a bit late..

How many facts would you say for each case study? I don't know if I'm going too overkill: I have quite a good memory but I'm not sure how many facts are needed

You need to know what happened before, eg prediction, protection, reasons. Then the impacts and the things they're doing to ensure they're better protected for the future.

Quick example:
1. Boscastle flood
Before: steep valleys of impermeable rock (slate), tributary feeding the river, heavy precipitation, deforestation
Impacts: £2 million cost, no deaths, 1 reported injury (a broken thumb), cars washed into the sea, tourism industry took a hit
The future: deepening and widening the River Valency, demolishing the Lower Bridge to replace it with a higher one, flood walls, afforestation (or reforestation).

You could be asked a question that will focus on each part, so you need to be knowledgeable about the whole picture. Also remember to get some 'place specific detail' in there - facts and figures.

I agree.
This is what we were always told as well.

i would say revise at least 3 points for impacts, 3 for causes, 3 for responses etc.
usually for the 8 mark questions you should expand on three points and use key words like this is a social impact or this is a long-term response to get into the higher band x
