I'm doing the NEA for my Geography Alevel with AQA and we need to do a literature review to get the top band of marks (which I'm aiming for). I have loads of references to different journals but I don't really know what to actually include in the Lit Review section.

Please help!!
Thanks

Try to include journals and articles which are related to your NEA title and hypotheses, so for example, if i'm writing on health deprivation in one area and how I feel this is related to falling education standards, I would go on to research articles and geographical phenomena linked to that idea. It is also important to note that you reference properly, using Harvard referencing preferably. I would also finish the review with why you are in interested in the idea you are covering, show some evidence that you have researched and have a baseline knowledge of others which have researched an idea similar to yours. Other than these things the lit review is pretty open to interpretation and you should be fine along as you don't waffle.
