    Ridiculously easy if you're the type of person who can sit down for a good few days memorizing a textbook. That's what I did for my GCSE Geography exams and made up somewhat plausible case-studies/stats.

    They have slightly different content, so you learn different things.

    I done aqa geography and it was ok. I only flopped because our teachers flopped our coursework- so half the yr got marked down. My coursework was predicted A* and i ended up getting a C.

    It's not too hard. I did the AQA A specification (I assume you're on the new 9-1 specifications now, so I'm not sure how relevant my information will be), and essentially, it's a memory game. If you can memorise lots of content from a textbook, you're set. However, my memory wasn't too great and I still got an A*, including full UMS on the physical geography paper as well as the coursework.

    I was predicted a C and came out with an A. If you revised the content, and know yoir case studies you'll be fine. Also idk if you still have coursework but try and get the highest grade you can in that 😊 also yes there are tiers
