Hmm it is quite content heavy! Would you be getting a tutor or just trying with the textbook?

If you go onto the CoolGeography website and go one to the A-level stuff (under the "advanced" sub-heading at the top) there are some topic names, you could check out a few of them if you're interested. (I think they're for the AQA exam board, so it's worth checking what exam board you're going to be doing first)

On PhysicsAndMathsTutor they have notes and revision things on for AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC under the "A-levels from 2016" heading

But there's not pressure to do loads of stuff for it now, I didn't do any geography in my Y11 summer going into Y12

Oh ok, many thanks for your help. I’m going to be doing AQA geography alongside biology and sociology. What did you get in your a levels, I’d you don’t mind me asking.

does your school put the timetable of topics you'll be covering throughout the year? use that to study ahead and i think geography doesnt need that much reading ahead but i'd highly recommend doing more past paper questions!!
for now maybe just try and remember the physical processes, i had an A in AS

Thanks for your advice. Im just worried that I’ll start off the course feeling stressed with the amount of work that I could’ve prepped for to make my life a whole lot easier.

ohh sorry aha, thank you for letting me know! my teachers recommended the physics and maths tutor for geography, they have lots of detailed notes also, if you check your course specification and perhaps go over the GCSE topics that will come again in a level. i think yt videos are underrated because i find some of them super useful for case studies. I hope this helps, good luck! oh, also time for geography website is genuinely the best, they are videos by universities!
