Hello everyone, I love Geography, but... I can't seem to revise the case studies very well. Is there anyone out there that can provide any resources or help?

I have lots of gcse and AS geography resources under my name, the case study ones are marked as case study. for gcse, i made mindmaps of each case study and just repeated them over and over each day i revised and saw how much i could write from memory. also, do past paper questions that involve case studies usually these are the 6-9 markers. i also was given little fact sheets that summaried each case study we needed for every topic by my geography teacher. you can make your own to start off with and then make mindmaps from these, just include a few bullet points about theings like fey facts/ location, short and long term effects and short and long term responces. try and remeber a few figures, cause this shows the examiner that you really know your case study. however, if the worst comes to the worst and in the exam you can't remember a case study then make one up using facts you do know, as long as it sounds realistic then that should be fine, i did this in my mock for a 9mark question about tsunamis and i got 8/9. hope this helps you
