map reading is a very little component of paper 3 (providing you're on AQA)
deffo recommend learning the case studies inside out and make sure you've got all the processes (like stacks and stumps, stuff like that) down to the point where you can describe them in steps
make sure you're confident on all the different types of questions (describe, explain, evaluate) and know what marks they're awarded

Mm, I'd say half and half. There's usually two 9 markers on each paper, and one of those is a 12 marker (3 marks for SPaG added), and they're your bigger essays where you need to write in paragraphs (so along the lines of agree, disagree, conclusion with opinion) These 9 markers are pretty much always on your case studies (hence why you could probably scrape a pass just by just knowing them), apart the one (or two??it was a while ago now ahaha) in the second half of paper three, cos they're on the application stuff you did (or will do) trips on.
Theres a bunch of six markers that still need consideration with paragarhs, though nothing on level of planning you'd put into a 9 marker (not much, tho, just a quick scribble beecause you haven't got much time)
The rest is anything from 4 marks to 1 marks, with lots of science-esk tick boxes, question and answers, multiple choice, you get the idea.
I'm a very essay kinda person like you too, and I geography was one of my best exams. Idk if you do history, but I found it a lot easier than that because a lot of it is really just general knowledge. I just learnt the case studies and pretty much everything else made so much sense to me it stuck in my head, or it was common sense (if in doubt in paper 1: climate change; if in doubt on paper two: positive multiplier effect)

Thank you so much i will be using these tips, I don't do history I'm good at it and I was going to but my sister said it's too much content and I don't enjoy it. Thanks x
