I had the same problem with gcse Geography. I would get lower grades in this subject compared to my other subjects.

Is this A Level geography or GCSE?

flashcards for case studies worked well for me. geography's pretty content heavy so condense the information down when possible- bullet points, mindmaps, flashcards etc...
exam technique's important too so get into the habit of practicing exam questions, particularly the ones with higher marks.

Edexel
I do ocr b. Definitely exam questions and I don’t know about edexcel but make sure to use examples even when it doesn’t say use a case study e.g. in the 6 marks.

I feel like only do Flashcards for casetudys or I write the facts/figures, causes, responses, social/economic/environmental impacts on a paper typed with short condensed information in different boxes.

Try repeating what you learn while you revise or try and teach it to a younger sibling.

PRACTISE QUESTIONS! Try not to get too hung up on all the content. You don't need 100's and 100's of statistics on each case study. If the worst comes to the worst just make them up. Ensure that you can write solid long answer questions and have good timing and exam technique. This pushed my grade up from a 5 to a 9 lol good luck x
