I have no clue how to revise for paper 3 - the synoptic paper which is on Thursday 13th June 2019! Any advice?

I'm talking about Edexcel here but...

I'd say that it is mostly knowledge of both human and physical that you need before going into this exam, which you should mostly know from revising the first two papers. It is also important to know which AO skills you will need for each question. For example in the 8 mark analyse questions you need AO1 and AO3, 4 marks for each AO.

I hope this helps, this is just how I've been revising for it!

learn the statistical tests!!!

no statistical facts needed (ie case studies) but make sure you know a few general ones you could name drop. the majority f your info should come from the resources

my teacher predicts that it will be about Tectonics and the water/carbon cycles. Maybe climate change too?
last years paper was based on globalisation and superpowers

my teacher predicts the carbon cycle as it didn't come up much in paper 1 and possibly something to do with TNCs as that wasn't really mentioned in paper 2??

I got -0.12 for the spearman question and talked about dependency theory (in terms of core and periphery) for the first question. How did everyone find Edexcel Paper Three in general?
