I don't know if anyone else had this issue but in my school for our mocks we're doing all 3 georgraphy papers. The only other subject I have more than 1 paper in is maths which is kind of understandable. I feel like geography is being a bit high and mighty here and I just wanted to know people's thoughts on this and if there's a reason they have to take up so much room on the exam timetable.

The workload isn't as bad as it may seem. Furthermore, I believe for your 3rd exam you have a booklet from which you can find ALL of the answers; it's there to test your analytical and application skills.

We have to do 2 but it doesn't seem unfair since in the real exam there's 3.

I understand that but the problem I have is that geography is the only subject doing this. I take history as well and we're only doing one paper. It seems unreasonable that students should have to revise so much more content for one subject than the rest

it's just a mock and you can't really revise for paper 3 anyway.
