Hi all
I'm going to start this as a place where all people who are going into year 12 in Sept 2019 and are studying alevel ocr geography can come and chat about GEOGRAPHY!
I am hoping that we will all be able to discuss our work and help each other out.
If you are studying this subject and exam board feel free to add how your feeling and what you are expecting it to be like etc

I’m working on my NEA at the moment, I’ve spent the last days on my data presentation and I can truly say I HATE MICROSOFT EXCEL AND MAKING GRAPHS ON STUPID COMPUTERS UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I’ve hand written most of my graphs so I’ll scan them into the computer.

And I need to do a “fancy special graph technique” to get the higher marks but I suck at computers. I want to do a proportional symbol graph of my river discharge as I recorded the longitude and latitude of each site but I don’t know how to use ARCGIS at all.

Yeah I’ve been working on it (on and off) since January. I didn’t do anything in March as I had mocks, but I’ve sort of left it to the end of the holiday 😩.

IM STRUGGLING WITH THE SAME THING!! I’m so bad at computers

Luckily during the summer we just have to collect all our data and we don’t have to create any graphs until school starts.

What have you decided to do yours on?

My question is “assess the extent to which crime and anti social behaviour levels have impacted the local people’s attachment to place among the ward of (my home town)”

I dropped ICT in like year 9 and never paid attention in lessons so I guess I only have myself to blame but eugh I hate computers, I much prefer pen and paper.

I’d love to study that as I love looking into geopolitics, unfortunately I think my teacher has chosen the other topic human rights

Oh it’s interesting but there are lots of new key terms to learn. I’m hoping for an A/A* in geography and was wondering if anyone had good revision techniques. I find practise questions for ocr geography quite hard to find 😬

Same here! I’ve only managed to find like one practice paper it sucks

I usually find flashcards good and I add questions on the back of them. For case studies I usually just make notes in a notebook. I only learn by rewriting things over and over - it’s a long process but oh well.

If you’re an audio learner you could try recording your notes then listening to it whenever you have free time e.g. on your way to school.

Otherwise mindmaps and sticking post-it notes around your house with key terms also work too.

Yeah french was my best subject at GCSE I got 240/240 in the exams and I loved it until about February when both of my teachers left all of a sudden, I found that quite shocking and then I haven’t been enthusiastic or passionate about french ever since. I was always told by my teachers “it’s your passion, your best subject” and when I went on holiday to Mauritius I was just embarrassed and ashamed to speak French for some reason I don’t know why. I don’t hate it now but I don’t have any passion or a “spark” for it like I used to

Full marks? Daaamn, congratulations! I’m sorry to hear you don’t have the same spark as you used to it’s so awful when you lose the joy in something you once loved to do.
