Its not that great, I barely manage to finish 6 mark questions (I leave them last since they are often confusing as heck lol). When it comes to essays I barely finish them within 30 minutes soooo...I need to do more practice papers ASAP

for most exams i usually have time left over, but geography a level i'm always writing till the last second. i've kind of figured out though if i spend 30 mins on each section, i then have an hour to go back over questions i had to stop/didn't have time to do in the 30 mins and it works well for me somehow

usually i get through most of the smaller questions, and usually 2 paragraphs into the 20 marker, i will say though i’m generally very fast in exams so…

it’s good though bc i often way over write so it kind of forces me to write what’s necessary and move on rather than waffle

I am wondering about the advanced information for geography - does anyone think there could there be a 20 marker on the smaller bulletpoints. Eg could there be a 20 marker on fishing and whaling for global governance even though all the rest of the global governance topic isn’t on the advanced information (such as Antarctica, climate change, tourism). ((I know this is paper 2))Thanks and good luck everyone

I doubt it, they removed pretty much the whole case study, and the 'essay making' bullet points on the spec, wouldn't rule anything out though, what do you think the paper 1 20 markers will be?

I think hazards will be on wildfires too because they seemed to add a bit to the specification on wildfires. Any predictions to particular questions they might ask based on wildfires.

I think the second 6 marker might be to do with approaches to wildfires - like give a source and the question be like to what extent does an approach to a hazard influence its severity.

There is only one 6 marker in hazards. Also that 6 marker is an analysis question, so It can't be this
