I thought spits were just for coasts? Lol anyway

How about getting a blank piece of paper and drawing a whole river, then you label the upper/middle/lower courses, the erosional/transportational/depositional processes that occur, the shape/velocity etc of the courses, landforms that are found there etc etc

Try doing that without any notes, then afterwards go back and add all the stuff you’ve forgotten in a different colour pen

Then you could either use flashcards or quizlet to learn the things you forgot if they’re like definition-y things eg abrasion, attrition, solution

For the formation of the landforms, print out a diagram or draw each one then label the steps again like for the river, then check it and add the stuff you forgot.

For me personally i prefer to just simplify the steps in each process and write them down on a piece of paper. Just simplifying it helps you to understand and remember the process

I hope this helps! 😁 you can ask me about anything else geography related too (i do it at a level)

You definitely need to know everything in a lot more detail for alevel, like more case studies plus just the overall specification is more in depth
I did my gcses in 2019 and got a 9 for geography ehe

Well like army of 1 said, but ill add some extras.

Watch this video about meanders: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qKS_Nk7UmY (ik its annoying quality)

As for coasts (spits), watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWEJq03NBao (also really annoying quality)

Rivers start in mountains, and they always try and flow to the easiest and lowest place they can (to the sea). They can form waterfalls (Where hard rock sticks out, and soft rock under it erodes (breaks apart).

I've also attached a picture of a meander.
