Thank you! I had a look on Bitesize last night and there wasn’t anything on it. I’m assuming they’re just looking for general knowledge with these questions but that’s not exactly ideal when you don’t know what the SQA are looking for, but I’ll definitely be using the marking schemes for my notes 😊

Have you had any luck looking at bitesize?

Last year for N5 Geography I also had the same issue with not being taught certain parts - but for development indicators I just looked at the marking schemes and made my notes from them. If I can find them, I'll send a screenshot of the notes I had on indicators - not great but it's better than nothing I guess

Hey guys! I was just wondering for Formation questions do you need to describe a process of erosion or deposition? Eg plucking, abrasion

hey!
for questions where it's like 'explain the formation of ...' out teacher always says you need to explain the processes involved eg if it was glaciation then at some point in the question you would need to explain the processes of plucking and abrasion (and maybe freeze-thaw weathering). Although it says this in one of the marking schemes:
Question: Explain the formation of a U-shaped valley.
A glacier moves down a main valley which it erodes (1 mark) by plucking, where the ice freezes
on to fragments of rock and pulls them away. (second mark for development).
So yh I always explain the processes but I don't think it's essential like if you got the marks elsewhere or had a really well-annotated diagram.

Idk I find timing quite tricky. Think i’ll have about 10 minutes left at the end judging by timed past papers and the Prelim

Is it fine for formation questions to use a diagram, and label my explanations? I do rivers so it would be for a waterfall, v-shapes valley etc
