The title says it all but I just basically need an idea of how to revise for it and what websites, youtubers or books I should use

revise processes and do practice questions, especially for 9 markers. geography is basically just a memory test so flashcards r great!

So when I revised geography, I loved making my own notes. For me geography was very visual like biology and then had some wordy questions. Flashcards are good, exam questions and timing- I cannot stress how important timing is- I always found myself running out of time but with practice ma s’more tests I become better- practice this and you can get those extra marks- an even jump a grade!😁😆

I got a 9 in GCSE geography - make sure you keep up to date with notes throughout the year because of how spread out GCSEs are in terms of learning time (e.g. I started the course in year 9 and finished in year 11). You should make sure any case studies you need to know (check your spec!) have very detailed notes and you've sorted your case studies into categories (e.g. human, physical, developed developing emerging country etc).

Learn your case studies inside out! Seneca learning was good for this, if you’re on AQA then the primrose kitten summary videos are also good

Learn ur case studies and examples, I'd recommend flashcards. And then learn how to structure ur answers especially w/ the higher mark questions. Seneca is a good website alsoo.

I basically wrote a whole set of brief notes for the course along with my classwork. So I ended up with a 200-page display folder of revision notes. The other big thing is just practising questions so you can answer almost any topic that comes up. Maybe watch a couple of documentaries about your big case studies too.

I got a 9 in geography, though I never found it as stressful as getting a 9 in history on the content front. I think you just need to have a good understanding of local and global issues, to be honest. It's more important to read around geography than other subjects.

Make sure you know your case studies! Flashcard them, mindmap them etc.

Practice! Use past exam papers. Stick to the timings best you can as this will give you the best insight to how you’d perform in a real exam. Once completed, mark it. For answers you got incorrect / didn’t know. Make a note of and revise the appropriate subject area again.

Thank you. The only problem with this is that im not really up to date with the work as lockdown has got me going crazy. Congrats on your grade😁
