I'm in 2nd year doing edexcel geo too and I can't say how to do the perfect answer as I'm only a C/B student but I type my notes after copying from the board(bad handwriting 😂)and go over things to make sure I understand them before next time as there is a lot to learn as we know.

I understand how your feeling. im also doing terrible!! I would suggest you keep going over the content and memorising the keywords as it will help you gain marks in the 12 markers for A01. Also you can constrct your own exam style questions by using the specification as it is a really good skill to have! Also make sure you try to fo an exam style question once a week. First lf all, break down the question, pick out the key words, make sure you have definitions for the key words as you may have to outline them in your introduction. If your question asks you to 'Assess' make sure you have a good structure, explain the most significant factor, and dont forget to write a conclusion cause most of the time you loae marks if you dont do so! Geography is a very content heavy subject, all i can say is if you put in 4 hours of revision every week you will be fine! If you have any questions feel free to ask!!

I'm doing water cycle atm, haven't started carbon cycle and the one I think you're missing is like global development or something like that. Personally I find the human side much much easier, the physical is very boring it's a necessary evil to an extent. So yea not sure how much help I can give with that one but for human ask away

We haven't started that topic yet but here's some links that might help with notes and revision?
http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/geogr...-carbon-cycles
https://www.tutor2u.net/geography/co...-carbon-cycles
https://www.tutor2u.net/geography/re...res-and-cycles
https://www.rgs.org/NR/rdonlyres/6FD...bonCycling.pdf
If these don't help and you're still struggling by March hmu because by then I'll have done the topic and I could try and help you myself

Theres loads to remember for human, arguably even more. I just find it less demanding because I enjoy it more
