Think there will be a 9/6 mark question on opportunities/Challenges in the Desert ,Tropical storms and climate chnage. But remember revise everything and especially your case studies. Any questions ask and I'll hopefully be able to help.

I think we could get ecosystems because we haven't had one before perhaps how to limit desertification as a 6 marker.

Yes, ecosystems such as food chains, webs , producers, etc is a good shout. Maybe opportunities/Challenges of living near volcanoes as I don't remember that coming up recently.

The first 2 sections are relatively easy I think. I got 53/58 in them but then I mess up on the third and get 20/30 which Is still a 9 but I would really love to get better on it.
What'd you think could come on coastal land forms?

There's the one in the textbook , but there isn't a 'case study'
It's just an example of an ecosystem

Probably something to do with formation of a stack and how it goes from a cave to an arch ,etc.

Revise food chains and webs, what a producer, consumer and decomposer are. Also how the removal of an organism can effect an ecosystem.

What even is desertification? Don't think I've been taught that...

Areas around the desert becoming desert. You will need to know how to prevent it and where it is happening. Go on Seneca learning and choose the correct course for you and you should find a section about it on there.
