How do you prepare for a geography (a-level) synoptic exam?Watch
Once you've thought of a common theme or link between two topics, the brainstorm some ideas about this link.

Earth hazards occuring can make a place feel "scary" or "foreign", especially when viewed through the media, as well as causing physical infrastructural damage, economic crashes, and so on. Don't forget to mention ideas about space and time, two central aspects of geography, and also scale. In addition, looking at past mark schemes, even from synoptics questions from different exam boards, is another good place to find specific information if that is what you're struggling with.
