Students in Geography will sit one 120 minute paper (worth 120 marks), which will cover all the units covered in class to date. This paper will be sat in your examination venue and will cover the three units from Paper 1 and two units from Paper 2 studied so far.
Specific information (e.g. facts, statistics and place specific detail) will be needed for the following examples and case studies:
You will need to refer to these examples on the 6 and 9 mark questions where directed.
You will need to be able to confidently discuss these case studies, referring to statistics and evidence where you can. You should demonstrate a clear understanding of them and be able to write confidently and accurately if asked about a specific aspect of any of them (e.g. the economic impacts of the Big Freeze on the UK).
Remember: Case study questions do not require you to simply write all you know about an event! Instead, you should use your knowledge of these real life events to help justify and substantiate the arguments you make when answering the question.
It would be very useful to create a revision material for each example and case study; for example, a mind map for each which categorises the key facts and pieces of information. You should also make use of the revision materials you have been creating over the past year.
