Other than general A level advice.
If you dont like a subject and its not for you then bail early i.e next few weeks.
If you wnat to do well then keep on top of your studies, have excellent notes and understanding plus do extra reading.
Get familiar with the exams and do work books or answer exam questions so you build up that skill.
Harder you work in Y12 then the more prepared for Y12 you will be.
Even if school isnt teaching you cna still read ahead by pre reading your English and Spanish texts.

Hi @Adam3568,

I hope you are well during these unprecedented times and hope your studies are going ok so far.

I can relate to studying A Level Geography. There were two key techniques which helped me throughout my studies. Whenever we went through a new topic, I spent 10/15 minutes looking up relevant news articles from the past 2 years. The exams questions are likely to have been written between that time, and it helps to create context of geographical issues during that period.

My second technique was creating “synoptic links” between other topics. Depending on the exam board in your longer answer questions, you may be asked to write about how one problem impacts another. For example, how the carbon cycle impacts the water cycle, how natural hazards impact the urban environment.

Have you thought about going to university- I understand it is not for everyone? But if a Geography Degree interests you, I am currently the 2nd Year of my studies. And would be happy to answer any general questions about studying and uni life.

All the best with your studies,

Best Wishes,

Sam Townsend | BSc(Hons) Geography Student at The University Of Huddersfield
