Ive studied half of the course but with 4 days to go, I need to know what I really should be covering.

So, can anyone give me any help on what to study?

Ive thought:

Lithosphere - Coasts/Glaciation

Development and Health/RLD - Same as every year.

The rest: HELPP unsure.gif

Hydrosphere's been on a rotational basis from OS MAP question to NON OS Map question every year since 1995. And if this pattern is kept it's a hydrosphere OS Map question.

Take a look at the following thread:

http://www.hsn.uk.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=2112

Decide what areas you have the least knowledge and concentrate on them.

I'm not going to stick my neck out and say which questions will be more likely to come up than others though.

Sparky, I disagree with the map question being a hydrosphere question - I think it will be coasts.

I think coasts will definetely be in paper one, because if it isn't it will be in paper two (Rural Land Resources) and it will be easier for the people who do the other optional units (apart from Rural Land Resources) to pass the exam, therefore I think the coast question will be in paper one. There is a good chance it could be an OS question.

My teacher thinks there definetely will be a coast question.

The key should be adequately useful. However, if you've got any specific questions then ask.

I don't know if they'd go for an OS Map as it's the first time it's asked. More likely I would think there will be a diagram of a coastal area, and it'll be along the lines of "pick two and explain their formation"

With OS map questions you could see the headlands sticking out and the bays in between the outcrops (Bays may say something like "Woodland Bay"). You could also see beaches and groynes to suggest longshore drift. Stacks would be tiny circular shapes just off the coast. Some other features, e.g cave, may just say "Something Cave." However, I would still prefer a glaciation or river OS map questin because I am mre used to it. If we do get a general coast question there may be good chance that more people do badly in it and therefore the cut-off marks will be lowered.

We got out a coastal OS Map in class and went over the features. You could also see cliffs, and a wave cut platform ( look for the bare rock symbols).

Certainly a rivers OS Map question is what the pattern of past papers suggests!
