Ok 🙂
When I first put down to do GCSE geography my geography teacher (thankfully he is no longer my teacher) literally said to me “don’t do geography, you will fail” But I didn’t listen and did it anyway 😊
At first I got pretty low grades (D/E) but I managed to turn it around and ended up getting a 7 in my yr11 mock. Here’s my advice: go out and buy a revision guide now and get ahead of everyone in your class. I also did AQA and I really recommend this revision guide: “AQA GCSE 9-1 Geography revision guide (Oxford)” It has a picture of an ant carrying a leaf if you can’t find it.
Feel free to message me if you need any help with the content 😊

Advice above looks very useful. A revision guide with practice questions helps greatly. I've found a lot of Geography GCSE was memorising processes and statistics so flashcards and Quizlet may come in handy. Also, if you're school has revision sessions I would advise going to them so you can ask questions

Thats some very good advice also, flash cards are a must. When i was revising for GCSE i just had them stuck up around my room everywhere. It looks a bit stupid but it helps you to remember lol

I personally recommend the 9-1 CGP AQA GCSE Geography revision guide. Its the one that says "complete revision + practice" and is purple and black. It has all the content covered quite well with mini practice papers at the end. It has >ALL< the case studies you need to know included as well, which I thought was really helpful since most 9 and 12 markers require use of case studies and examples.

My flashcards for AQA geography can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...bag/edit#gid=0.

I used CGP's revision guide in combination with the Oxford class book. I'd say the £30 oxford one can be skipped as it's a little overwhelming at times. Did all the online specimen materials and asked my teachers for the confidential sample assessment materials. I've been targeted 7/8 so hopefully I've hit that and I'll find out thursday.
