Top Revision Tips
Learn Case studies well they are the key to success – make fact cards to help memorise the key facts.
If the question asks for examples, you must give them.
It may say for an example you have studied – (give one example) or use examples in your answer – (more than one example).
It is common to be asked to ‘name and locate’ If you do not do this when asked you will lose marks.
If you cannot remember a useful example think about the local area around where you live.
This is a good area to describe if you are looking at tourism or agriculture,
or you need an example of a village, small town – Tavistock, city - Plymouth, local factory or farm.
Use up to date examples from the news even if we have not covered them in class.
Take note of the command words;
‘Describe’ – requires you to simple state what is shown. ‘Explain’ - requires you to give reasons for the patterns.
Similar commands could be ‘account for’ ‘assess’ ‘evaluate’ ‘comment on’
Make good use of resources provided by the examination board,
they contain a mass of useful information that you don’t have to have learnt.
Form your own opinions on issues - ensure you present a balanced argument both for and against.
Learn and use geographical vocabulary for key topics eg hydrology, coastal processes.
Choose questions carefully to match what you know and what you have been taught,
paying particular attention to the 8 and 9 mark questions.
Avoid vague statements eg good education, nice climate, good soils – Learn facts and figures so you can support your answers.
