Geography mock on monday: Help

I have my year 10 geography mock exam this monday, (in exactly 4 days) but i havent even started anything about it since i was revising my other subjects.

i know i shouldnt be cramming but if theres any way i can still get a decent grade (like a 6 or 7) please give any advice or tips.

heres some details about my mock; my school is just squishing all of these together into one whole paper:

paper duration: 1 hr 30 mins

3 sections;

UK PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT: uk distinct landscapes, everything on rivers such as the jubilee river scheme and severn rivers, coasts such as the holderness coast, medmerry

URBAN ISSUES AND CHALLENGES: NEEs such as Lagos, sustainable cities such as freiburg and curitiba

PHYSICAL FIELDWORK.


thank you for reading!

I looked over a model past paper and looked at a few case study evidence and got 9 I also had 3 exams on that day
id say u have a lot of time if its in 4 days
go over the past papers and answer the 6 markers using ur own psd from ur case studies = it can just be remembering a point evidence and simple explanation as u can easily expand that on the spot
id pick 2 papers with different case studies for each topic so u cover all bases
then look at the shorter markers like 1/2 and attempt those and some basic math ones
look at the 3/4 markers there normally something like how are earthquakes formed for a 4 marker so find the ones u wouldn't know how to answer and learn the answers and understand them
then attempt a past paper u can literally answer roughly or mentally but just ensure u would be able to answer the questions if it was on ur test if ur aiming for a 7 u should definitely be able to get it

Urban issues and challenges vary greatly across different types of cities, from rapidly growing metropolises like Lagos to more established sustainable cities like Freiburg and Curitiba. Here's a brief overview of some key aspects:

1.

Lagos, Nigeria (NEE - Newly Emerging Economy):
Population Growth: Lagos faces immense population growth, leading to overcrowding, strain on infrastructure, and inadequate housing.
Infrastructure Deficit: The city struggles with inadequate infrastructure such as roads, public transportation, and utilities, which exacerbate congestion and limit access to basic services.
Informal Settlements: A significant portion of Lagos's population resides in informal settlements, lacking basic services and often facing threats from eviction and poor living conditions.
Environmental Concerns: Rapid urbanization has led to environmental degradation, including pollution, loss of green spaces, and challenges in waste management.

past papers will save you trust 🙏🙏 they'll give you a feel for the exam (which you might not have too much experience of if you’re in y10) and show you specific areas you need to work on (for last minute cramming)
oh and go over any case studies

heyy! Im also in year 10, and I also have my geography mock next week (Wednesday) and I too haven't done much revision, as I was focusing on other subjects...
But anyways I'm also doing the same topics as you (but instead of urban issues and challenges, im doing development dynamics!)
And yh as others have mentioned doing past paper questions and looking at model answers would be helpful. Also for things like case studies and fieldwork, make sure you know the facts and figures, as you'll have to use them in your answers. Maybe you could also try practicing some of the long answer essay questions in timed conditions too, just so you're aware at how much time you actually have for that question.
Ik other people have basically said the same thing, but I hope this helps and good luck! <3
