What are the best methods of revision for memorising the different case studies and just revision in general?

Thank you, Emma. I think I will try that it. It sounds beneficial to try questions that have occurred in the past as they do tend to use the same style and ask similar sorts of things

And you can either get your teacher to look through your answers and mark them or look at the mark schemes on the internet (they should be on there along with the past papers).

I would go on YouTube and search something like ‘a level geography revision’
So many youtubers, or ‘studytubers’ have really comprehensive videos that are so useful
For geog specifically there prob won’t be that many
But it’s worth looking x

Hi,

I think my top tip would be find case studies that cover a couple of topics.

I'm not sure which board/topics you are doing but I did AQA and we covered Coasts, Water and Carbon cycle, Hazards and Population and the Environment. So as an example if I learnt in depth lots of information about say Mangroves in the Sundarbans this links to all four modules for I could talk about the water cycle at a tree scale and it's interaction with the sea and coastline, how the trees store carbon, how the mangroves provides resources for the people who live there and how they protect the coastline especially from storm surges which are quite frequent in that area etc.

This means that you don't have to learn as much (for the basic facts such as where it is etc. are the same wherever you chose to use the case study) and you're more likely to remember it because you'll have a deeper and better understanding of the case study. Moreover, if you weave in some of the links between modules this shows "holistic" thinking (this is a key word in AQA - it's when you're not just thinking about concepts as being separate from each other but recognising that everything is intricately linked) which indicates you can really engage with the study.

More generally I think exams come down to four main things - knowledge, timing, technique and a nice examiner, as we sadly can't control the last one I'd focus on getting the others all to a similar level for if you have great knowledge, great timing and bad technique you'll score less marks then having good knowledge, good timing and good technique. This is just my theory.

Hi guys I have a quick question: does the number of areas of elevation in a dune profile correlate to the number of stages of succession? I was looking through my textbook and realised that I just made the assumption that they do correlate but I’m not sure if that’s right.
