GCSE AQA Geography- SenecaWatch
Hi all. Just wanted to know your thoughts about the Seneca course on GCSE AQA Geography? I was thinking about using it more for my revision, but not too sure about it- do you think it covers enough? Thanks in advance
Hope this helps.
Hello, I am a current sixth form who took AQA Geo at GCSE and received a 9 in all papers, which leaves me with some experience to answer this question. I personally was encouraged by my teachers to use Seneca for tests we received in the year on specific units. I found them quite useful on the glacier and river topics that involve heavy memorizing especially of keywords. However, for the mocks and final exams I found Seneca to be too restrictive and not challenging enough, it helps to revise the keywords and diagrams with some active recall but does not push your essay skills far enough. It also does not cover all the options available in the curriculum and therefore the specific data and case study you revised in class are more important to look over. My best advice is to use a mix of resources that work best for you, make sure to use past papers to practice answering longer questions like the 9 markers, as well as the Paper 3 with the special booklet.
Hope this helps.
Okay, thanks for answering my question. Do you think it's good to help memorise case studies- that's what I'm looking to do- and if not Seneca, are there any other resources I can use? Thanks again
I found seneca useful for learning processes e.g. formation of a waterfall, but I found the case studies didn’t go into as much detail as we covered in class https://www.physicsandmathstutor.com...sion/gcse-aqa/ has some good resources for some of the AQA toOff
