Anyone got any good techniques for revising Geography?

  • 0 votes

I've done notes before, and that's been alright, but I have no space left on my walls to stick any more notes up! I am in desperate need of new techniques to get case studies stuck in my head BEFORE my GCSE Unit 2 Geography exam on the 22nd of June. Any help would be much appreciated!

There's no 'right' way to revise as everyone has different techniques. Always make sure that you do your revision in small chunks such as 30 minutes slots & a mini break. Our school advised us to do 2 hours on a school night & 4 hours on a weekend. Memorising techniques include...

.Making everything in note form & then re writing the notes, this is useful for subjects such as Geography or Science 

. Doing lots of past papers as similar questions come up in the exams every year, this will help you familiarize yourself with the questions & preparing yourself for the questions

. Look at the examiner's report & see what they made of the exams & they tell you how you can improve

. If you're a more visual learner I advice pictures as one of the best ways to remember things, the sillier the picture the easier it is to remember

. Do mind maps & write the key notes down, this doesn't work for everyone but have a go :)

Exams a stressful, but if you start your revision early then you have more time to revise therefore it's less stressful 

Before your exam remember to eat something nutritious, I always eat banana's before my exams as they release the energy slowly, making your brain function better (I've read this on the internet somewhere:L) & bring water with you in the exam

Good Luck in the exams & I wish you all the best :D

P.S apparently having fish oil capsules boosts your memory as it's omega 3. You may want to give it a go :)

I always do questions on case studies in order to see how much I remember and what I need to learn more of!

For geography I firstly make sure I know the theory so I make notes in bullet point form, then just learn the case studies, make mind maps of then and read through them, say them to yourself, get people to test you on them and do past papers, the last one really helps. Also, try to relate geography to things around you, like if i go to the beach I try to relate things I learnt about coasts to things I see, this really helps, just like my geography teacher tells us all the time geography is all around you!
