I have two GCSE Geography exams coming up within the next two weeks. I was hoping that some of you might have some ideas as to how i can get the last bits of information into my head :) 

I'm studying with Edexcel and have exams on: Geographical Skills and Challenges 

Tectonic Landscapes and Watery World

Any revision tips or websites would be really useful! Thanks :)

Case studies are important to learn and remember to put them in often especially for long mark questions as they get you extra marks. I use a website called kerboodle when revising Geography - it has case studies and activities that you can do but you may not be able to access this if your school has not signed up to it. Also, doing past papers may be helpful and even if you don't actually answer them have a look so you know what to expect in your exam

Good luck :)

Make sure you know your case studies. when using them in those longer questions, include dates, numbers and names to back up your case study as these are what the examiner looks for first. Practice past papers and get some practice at answering the longer case study questions, I find that it is easier for me to remember case studies when I apply them to questions. Finally, remember to answer the right number of questions; I do AQA geography and we have 6 topics in each paper but we only answer 3. Good luck :)

If there are any specific figures or names that you think would be useful, or that you need to know, you could try writing them on post-it notes and sticking them up in your house in a place that you go to regularly ( i.e on the kettle or something) as the more you see something, the more you remember it.
