As I haven't found any threads for this exam board I thought I'd create one for those who are dealing with the new EDUQAS exams 😅

Here lies exam technique, discussions about the exam or any last minute questions in preparation for Wednesday!

Feel free to add any resources or past papers that may benefit others and aid in the last minute revision :)

This covers the Component 1 exam
Section A: Changing Landscapes
Section B: Changing Places

Finally found someone else who does the same exam board as me!From looking at last years exam paper, I definitely think that Chi Squared will not come up as it came up last year, so that means Spearman's could come up. In the Changing Landscapes section, do you do Coasts or Glaciers? I do coasts

Yes I definitely agree, Spearman's is highly likely to come up - which is good because I like that 😅 I also do coasts for the changing landscapes section :)

I think for changing places there will be some sort of question on deindustrialisation and social inequalities in urban places, or a question on managing rural challenges as I haven't been able to find many past exam questions on those topics!

For changing landscapes though, it's hard to say - possibly a question on aeolian/biotic processes e.g coral reefs or sand dunes.

We had to complete the last point of Ocean governance on our own. Would like if Coral Reefs came up or something to do with Isostatic and Eustatic change

I'm so glad to hear that it wasn't just me and my college who were running out of time with teaching and had to do it ourselves... this spec is so demanding, so much content! 😫

Yes I would love questions on either of those, that would be such a nice question and easy to pick up full marks too

This has really helped/aided my revision! I am honestly a bit worried about this exam, as we can't really predict what will be on it :/ Hopefully common sense will pull me through lol!

I do French (AQA) and Business (Edexcel).
My worse paper is paper 2 because it is soooo long!
I actually don't mind paper 3 because I feel like it is kind of easy to get marks as you just have to include a load of case studies and diagrams :) My topics for paper 3 are Weather & Climate, Tectonic Hazards and Energy Challenges
