National 5 Geography 2019-20 Watch
Is there any help u could give me so that I’m able let to answer the first question in the prelim/exam which is about glaciers/coasts and idk how to revise for it?? should i memorise how a u shaped valley is formed? idk what its gonna ask me to describe tho, how did u revise for it??
Hey has anyone done the prelim yet? Could u pls give tips on what topics to revise?! Thanks
General advice would be to:
- know your formations
- know which questions you are going to answer on (as there will be choices of topics to answer on- though you'll almost definitely have only been taught the minimum number needed, which is fine)
- make sure you can read a map- it will come up! (if not in the prelim, in the final exam)
- and mostly- know your case studies!!!
My Nat 5 Geography prelim is January 31st. We studied Health, Environmental Hazards, Glaciers and Coasts, Urban and Rural Landscapes and Weather. Teacher barely went over population but said it will be in the test. Any advice? I thought about getting a textbook and learning it myself, but I’m not sure which one is the best. I have the ‘How to Pass,’ which are not great in my opinion. I though either Brightred or Leckie&Leckie. Or maybe there are better ways to revise, through past papers for example. Do you have any other revision techniques?
Past papers are a good choice, and for geography I think that the marking schemes are particularly valuable- they'll tell you pretty much exactly what you need to write for each mark. SQA Understanding Standards (https://www.understandingstandards.o...aphy/national5) is particularly good in that sense, as it has real candidate papers which you can see good (and less good) responses to questions.
Some of the course really is just a case of memorisation (by whatever method best suites you) like for your formations...I found that flashcards and mindmaps worked well for me for geography, but again, it is quite a subjective thing, as what works well for one person won't be as effective for another.
Hope this helps a bit
