Sooooo my exam is in 20 days, have I started properly revising? lol no I need to get A in geography overall to get into my firm so yeah, I'm pretty f**ked, anyway any advice for the last minute revision to push my grade up? Thank youuuu . I'm doing OCR geography. Also if your advice is to look at past paper questions, there's only two since I have the new spec, and I've done them all

Glad I'm not the only one! Why have we done this? Though I'd been in this same position for my whole life haha you'll be fine with AQA I used to do that exam board and the exam structure is so much better than OCR

I take A-level maths so that stuff is calm most of the time however statistics is my weakness but it should be alright. They pretty much guide you through the question. I'm more worried about the 20 markers and knowing the content well enough
