Can someone please explain to me what the geography paper 3 is?
I'm very confused and my geography teacher has never fully explained it. Apparently we are supposed to get material 12 weeks before the exam, I'm pretty sure its like 10 weeks till the exam and we haven't got anything. Also we haven't done any fieldwork so i have no idea what I'm going to do for that part of the paper!

the geography paper 3 exam is half based on fieldwork so its really important that you know the fieldwork. There is human fieldwork e.g going to a shopping centre to find out primary data (such as surveys, questionnaires) and physical fieldwork e.g going to a river to study the long profile by working out the velocity, width of the river etc. You need to ask your teacher to tell you more about the fieldwork

There's also the resource booklet you should've got some time ago. Questions are going to be on that as well. Don't worry too much you're getting it in the exam. This year it's water I think.

If you haven't done any fieldwork at all, then technically your school are lying to the examboard, which is malpractice.

In the AQA spec it says:
"Schools and colleges must submit a written statement as evidence that the fieldwork requirement has been met.
The statement must record the date, location, numbers of students participating, the main issues/questions investigated and the part of the specification content to which the fieldwork is linked. The statement must be signed by the Head of Centre.

Any failure to provide this statement in a timely manner will be treated as malpractice or maladministration (under Ofqual's General Condition A8 (Malpractice and maladministration))."

Hi, will I need my copy of the booklet or will I need a new one that will be given to me in the exam, because mine has annotations in it, not sure if you can use it if it does?

look at a past paper as well, so you can see what type of question you might get and the structure of the exam.

guys there's a really good specimen paper for paper 3 available online so just use that, i mean it has all the techniques needed and you can see what types of questions will come up, there's a high probability that the structure of the questions will be similar.

The one on the website is the specimen. The one that will come up is about the water transfer and reservoir scheme.

Section A is the issue evaluation (water transfer) and Section B is about your fieldwork as well as general fieldwork questions. Both sections will include skills with maps and graphs etc.
