case studies are important, revise these constantly. flashcards for diagrams and key processes. i used a myrevisionnotes revision guide for revision and practice questions, a little pricier than CGP i think but worth the money as the layout was really easy to read and they had lots of useful questions.

sorry to hear that, seems to be a problem across many schools recently geography i'd say isn't too hard content wise to understand, especially the human geography so you can do it!! use stuff like seneca learning to help if you can.

I mainly focused on case studies and exam technique. Knowing the basic content is essential but being able to show the examiner you know it and bringing in little real-world examples/details is very significant too. Once you start feeling confident with the basic content, or even before, start doing a lot of practice papers and exam Qs. From 4-markers all the way through to 12-markers, get teachers to assess them for you and try not to lose little marks. Good luck!
