well I'm going to do a level geography too, I did it for gcse and apparently it is a big step up from gcse, I had a good technique for gcse geography that I'm planning on using for a level too, although it doesn't appeal to everyone. Buy the revision book and read 3 or 4 pages then make notes in bullet point form on each page, then make a couple of reasources on here, when you learn a case study the best way to remember most of it is to write out the facts in bullet points and highlight key words and figures, make mindmaps of each case study over and over until you know most of it of by heart, do this for each case study, I know it sounds boring but it does work, I got an A* for geography. my a level geography course is actually designed for people who didn't study it at gcse so I think you'll be fine, just keep up with the work, don't leave it to the last moment and leave plenty of time to revise and revise well. also do past papers, a few questions a week worked for me at gcse just to keep a good exam technique. Also, after each lesson read up on what you learnt that day, so it's fresh in your mind. I hpe this will help you, good luck with your a levels. what exam board are you on?

i've ust done Alevel georgaphy

As idn't a big step up from GCSE, i did exactly the same topics in GCSE an A level just in more detail

however it's a big step from As to A2

Study as you would for anything else, reread and do practice!

Mke sure you memorise case studies and include them as often as possible and in great detail!

I have a load of revision resources have alook through and rate:)

that's ok, I've just spent ages trying to find a revision book for ocr, seems as level geography ocr isn't very common but I managed to find one in the end, the reason I asked which exam board you were on was because I had the link for past papers for ocr.
