Hey hope everyone is well how's everyone feeling about geography? Anyone have predictions for hazards 20 marker as I'm thinking the local case study for wildfires.
with there being only a month left til paper 1 what are the best ways to revise and use the past papers and how many times shall I do them and how exactly to predict the 20 marker questions
please give tips thanks or what you're doing at the moment thanks :smile:
hmm don't have any predictions yet what do you think for w+c and coasts I think it may be tectonics/volcanoes but yh i dont know I haven't looked at the pattern of 20 markers yet :smile:

1 month is more than enough for good revision . Hopefully you must have completed most of the syllabus, if not then don't stress about it , previous year questions are always at rescue for students , whatever syllabus you have completed with that try to go through the PYQs and try answering them honestly , mark down in a piece of paper whatever topics were your weak points , work hard on them , with the PYQs you can get an estimate of what topics will probably be asked and what topics are important for your paper , rest don't waste time revising things that you already know and work on areas which give you a hard time . Hope this helps! Best of luck!
Just to let you guys know I've merged a few conversations about the same exam. Hope revision is going okay! :biggrin:

my physical geo teacher hasn't been very clear on case studies throughout especially for the hazard topic and so i'm always confused on how many i need or what i even studied in the first place. what ones are everyone else doing for the hazard topic (if you're doing it) because this one has so many :frown:

Are you aqa? I have like 9 case studies for hazards which I think is far too much tbh.

Ikr haha its really tough. Have you got any predictions for hazards? I'm thinking the 20 could be on local case study of wildfires which for me is Bel Air. Its only thing to not come up ever so I'd say revise wildfire local study well.
Hi, I am currently struggling with structuring my 20 and 9 mark answers.

So if anyone could send me any example answers (preferably top band answers) , especially from the paper 1 topics of : water + carbon, coasts, and hazards that would be greatly appreciated 🙏pls help a girl out

AQA A-Level Geography Assessment Resources - Then click on the side bar thing, 'Examiner Reports' , they will have examples of low mark answers and top band answers for all the questions for every paper that has been done in the past.

I use flashcards to memorise key facts and figures to use in 20 markers + 9 markers. Other than that, I use practice questions. I'm open to any suggestions too though!

It's the only thing that hasn't come up before so there's a strong chance it is the 20 marker. I could be wrong tho.

Different schools have different places for me the local case study is Bel-Air Wildfires.
