hiya.
i do geography under AQA.
I prefer Physical Geography but i also don't mind Human Geography.
I find case-studies hard to remember, as i always get them mixed up.
Im predicted a 9 and got a 9 in my yr10 Mocks (I did paper 1&2).
I use the AQA Geography guide, as well as making notes from my school work (i take my book home), as well as this big paper with all the case studies on (which i just got yesterday). I also practice with past papers, to get an idea of the type of questions and how they are structured.
I also do Coasts instead of Glaciers.

Hello, thanks for making this thread!

I'm doing edexcel B for geography which isn't very common.
I prefer learning human geography, as I find it more interesting, however I find that questions for physical geography are slightly easier than human geography questions.
There's so much content and obviously we have the case studies too!
I use quizlet, save my exams, time for geography and cgp revision guide for my revision!

Hi, something that really helps me is instead of making plain notes, I integrate my notes using past paper/practice questions, sometimes I add my own questions (in the style of how they would ask it in exams) and underneath put my answer in bullet points. When it comes to revision, I just need to look at the compilation of questions and test myself using those. I'd also recommend getting a revision guide that doesn't waffle, but instead goes according to the specification - like cgp or pearson.

I got 9 in geography, and ive uploaded my paper 1 notes.
First off get your content nailed ie understand everythin in the first place. Next step is memorizing. Theres multiple methods including flashcards and blurting. I recommend blurting but everyones dif n yeah its that simple. Oh and do past qs as many as you can get your hands on

I do AQA Geography.
I enjoy having to study about different landscapes and hazards and how countries manage these.
I am struggling with anything yet, a minor issue I had in the past was not being able to memorise specific landmarks and places,
but I've gotten better at that now. I don't know my predicted grades, it is going to be revealed after I do my mocks.
