Hello! I was looking through my exam timetable and I saw that I have to sit a geography paper 3 exam! however, I haven't been told about one and I have no idea what's in it!! im worried because im getting grade 8/9 in my other papers and I don't want it to drag me down? Does anyone know what's in the exam and how to revise for it!

Paper 3 includes fieldwork skills, answering questions based off data you're given etc. I'd ask your teachers about it ask they'll be able to tell you in much more detail!

Have a look at the past papers on the AQA website: here

But be mindful of the changes because of COVID - for paper 3, they've changed quite a bit:

"This means we’ll be making some changes to Paper 3: Geographical applications.

Question 5, Section B (on familiar fieldwork) will be removed.
There are 3 SPaG marks in question 5 which will be moved to one of the 6-mark questions within Section A (issue evaluation) so that students can still access these marks
The total number of marks available for the 8035/3 paper will reduce from 76 to 56 marks (a removal of 20 marks).
The total time allocation for the 8035/3 paper will reduce from 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour.
Questions on ‘unfamiliar fieldwork’ (theoretical understanding of the fieldwork enquiry process) will remain."

It's based off the fieldtrip that you went to. I got a Grade 8 in Paper 3.

Well it's not 'topics' as such, i think you can be asked to draw ideas from any of the compulsory topics and use your knowledge to answer data based questions. Have a look at some of the past papers i linked, they'll give you a better feel for what's in there!
Ask your teacher too (if nothing else, just to make the rest of your class aware too!)

Section B for Paper 3 is fieldwork but the data will be given to you since we haven't gone on fieldtrips

for Section A it will about the pre-release booklet on waste incineration which you might have gotten in class, I didn't find the actual booklet but here is a website about it : https://www.internetgeography.net/aq...e-incinerator/
