Is it possible to use the case studies from my textbooks as they are much more condensed and in an easy to access layout rather than the mess of my school exercise book.

Thanks

Out of interest, what exam board and textbook do you use?

AQA exam board and the myrevsionnotes hodder education textbook + cgp guide for the diagrams and developing on anything the other book missed.

Also the student room has a website that people upload things for every subject to so I get minor details from that too.

Hope i helped ?

yes and ask your teacher if the case studies are appropriate, most case studies textbooks and teachers give you are obviously suited to the questions asked in the exam

After having done GCSE Geography and now facing my Year 13 exams in little over 2 months you learn that it's best to use case studies you know really well rather than what other people suggest. If you are being taught some in class then that might mean you know them more in depth.

Also try and use local case studies to you as much as possible as you know about them without having to try. This is easier if you live in a big city as rebranding, regeneration and a whole host of other things are constantly going on. The examiner won't know what you've been taught so you can pick up case studies from anywhere. This is harder for tectonics and natural hazards however, unless you happen to live on the edge of a plate boundary. Just don't make them up like some of my friends tried to - it didn't end well

Thank you!

I am going to be using the case studies for human environment eg regeneration and urbanisation that I learned in school as they have been talked about in depth and they are about cities close to me.

However, I feel as thought the tectonic and natural hazard case studies weren't taught as well and so I feel more confident that I will succeed using my textbooks example case studies.

I'm not going to make something up though! I'll be sure to use my efforts to learn about each individual case study!

Thanks!

my teachers for a level encouraged us not to only use the case studies we did in class but to research and find our own. i kept an eye out for relevant news stories that i could turn into case studies. i was also lucky that there was loads of river and coastal flooding during my a levels so i used that. i remembered those case studies more than those in the book or in my notes as i researched them myself
