Geography is my strongest subject and the one I'm most confident on. So because of this I think it'd be helpful to me to remember stuff by explaining things to others and help them too!

So if anyone has any doubts about the GCSE geography exam or you're weak in a specific area then I'll be happy to try and help you out!

If not it'd be cool to hear how everyone else is feeling about this exam!

Wave-cut notches are formed when the waves smash rocks against the cliff (abrasion although you don't always have to put this) carving out a notch.

Wave-cut platforms are formed when a wave cut notch is too deep and the cliff gets too heavy and falls into the ocean.

Sure thing!

Headlands - Formed by hard rock that doesn't erode as easily
Bays - Formed by soft rock eroding

Concordant - Only one type of rock along the coastline
Disconcordant - Where hard and soft rock run alongside (parallel) this is where the soft rock erodes to form coves/bays with headlands being the hard rock

Caves/Stacks/Stumps

1-Waves cause weakness in the base of the headland that causes cracks
2-Water erodes at these cracks forming a cave
3-As the cave gets bigger as more and more of the headland is eroded eventually cracks form at the top of the headland, this is now an arch
4-As the arch gets bigger eventually collapses, leaving a stack separate from the mainland
5-The stack then erodes and becomes a stump

Hope this helps!
