Another of my little efforts!
I am getting there!
I am getting in the flow now!

Revision Timetable - Session 3

As we come to the end of Paper 3, it would be a good idea to make series of cards on skills and methods. So buy a large packet of cheap cards (may be useful for the case studies too). Copy any and paste all of into WORD - the pictures will dance about a bit but it should all be there. Save as Paper 3ALL Then start to sort - take rivers for example. SAVE AS Paper3 Rivers and proceed to delete everything that is not rivers. Then print out all the rivers stuff, and with judicious cut and pasting (literal not virtual) each section on different cards, you should have all you need to know about rivers. Then open up Paper 3All again - select a different topic - save as Paper 3_ that topic and start deleting everything not to do with that etc etc. But the end, all notes should be in one section or other - and you have a complete set!

Revision Timetable - Session 2

About time, I hear you say!


Using some of the cards from Session 3, allocate one card per case and put the locations and the main points about each case study on one card - those of you who have a casestudy put by - print it out and fit onto both sides of one card
This is a list of all the case studies and where to find them - this is the word document worth all the links in tact:
And there is the list as a graphic


Revision Timetable - Session 1

The easiest thing to start with is to make sure of the keywords.
When to use them?

  • In answer to what is that thing there called?
  • In answer to a question asking you to explain some idea or other - remember avoid using the word in the answer or anything closely related. e.g Run-off is the water that runs off down a slope. X Run-off is precipitation that flows over the ground Right [In fact no run or off or even running]
  • When ever you can add them to answers - try to go for say 2 keywords per long question - impresses the markers no-end.
  • Also when you are asked a question using a key word, often marks are allocated for you showing you understand what it means - so best bet is to define it in the first sentence - e.g. What might the pulls be on a migrant from their destination - opening sentence: The pulls are those aspects of their destination, the place they are moving to, that make the place attractive. Then get on to say what they are.
Here is a fairly comprehensive list
Get some small pieces of card and put the word on one side and the definition on the other - and play games with yourself - look at 10 definitions and try and remember which word they refer to. Once you have done that, turn them over - and try and remember the definitions. I would do just 10 and then another 10 another day. Then mix them up and do the 20 together, before you make some new ones
Want to revise the drainage basin words - print out this sheet - cut the word table(end of last page) out into squares and place the words on the definitions
