Is it wise to look up different case studies than the ones given in the textbook and can you give me some really good examples of case studies which you have found and have worked.

For example i would look up more recent scholar articles on google scholar on relevant case studies for my topics. How many do you need as well for each topic?

I’m in yr 12 n we did coasts & changing places out of what you’ve done -
for coasts...
Holderness
Ainsdale
Sunderbans
Can’t remember the rest - exams on Tuesday :/

Changing places...
Liverpool
Amsterdam
Brick lane
Chester
Think that’s it

But I don’t think you really need case study’s as much as GCSE like I reckon you’ll be fine knowing some good specific facts about them but not in full knowledge.

Hope this helps

Hi,
What I've done is used the examples from the books and the ones my teacher gave us but then I've researched those and found out more interesting facts about those ones, rather than the generic stuff.
Oh and also, keep an eye on the news over the next couple of weeks and read articles on the bbc because you never know what stuff you read could be relevant (for instance, the stuff in the news at the moment about the bike scheme problems in China)
Hope this helps

I find it easy to revise from textbook but depends how well you will remember it and how good your notes are - I use textbook because it’s all there that I’ll need to know and just make notes on it

I just don't get what I need to know and what I don't need to know it's all so ambiguous, so I'm stressed out enough as it is, let alone thinking I'm revising stuff I don't need to know or missing stuff out in my notes.
Why can't aqa make what's in the specification explicit rather than emplicit

thing is, it has been said examiners find it boring to see textbook case studies so It has been recommended to find your own. thts y i was thinking of it.
