    Anyone doing AQA Geo this year with the 1st paper tomorrow, which case studies do you think will come up? Also, does anyone know whether they actually talk about the smaller "named examples", like Swanage Bay or Lyme Regis, or do they just focus on the big 3 case studies that are: Cold/Hot Environments, Earthquakes/Volcanoes and Rainforests?

    I wouldn't expect a 9 marker in section c, imo as the structure has been for the past papers, multiple choice then 6 marker then 4 or vice versa; however you never know AQA are AQA

    I mean, the earthquakes/volcanoes, rainforests, and cold environments/hot deserts are the only major and big case studies, the others are all named examples, so I was wondering whether it's actually worth learning them.

    case studies they give ? usually they tell u to choose for e.g. the volcano or eaarthquake one see link below
    http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/resource...-80351-SQP.PDF
    but AQA may just give one but i doubt it since all schools teach different ones
