Geography GCSE B case studies?

  • 0 votes

I am doing Human and Physical papers for the Edexcel Geography B specification in the summer and was wondering about case studies. I know that you only need to know case studies in limited detail for one of the three sections (A/B/C) but I am not sure which ones?

For example, Section A contains 4 topics (Restless Earth, Climate and Change, Battle for the Biosphere and Water World) whereas Sections B and C contain only 1 (my school has chosen Coastal Change and Conflict and Oceans on the Edge). I would assume that we have to know Section A case studies in less detail and Section B case studies in much more depth because there is only one topic. Is this right or have I missed something?

I used examples from the Physical paper but the Human layout is identical so I guess however one works the other will be the same.

Sorry if this is confusing but could do with clearing it up!

Thanks x

For volancanoes you could have, Nevado Del Ruiz in Colombia (LEDC) and the Iceland Eruption (MEDC)

For earthquakes you could have, Haiti (LEDC) and the Japan Earthquake (and tsunami) (MEDC)

Climate and Change, you could use the last Ice Age in Britain and on the thames river etc, also the viking era?

Battle for the Biosphere- rainforests? deserts? Congo Basin?

Water world- india (for water shortages and quality)

Coastal Change and Conflict- theres quite a few for this i think, including Old Harry Rocks (for the erosion and things), Highcliffe and Barton on Sea (for coastal management), Swanage and the Dorset area(for headlands and bays)

Oceans on the Edge- theres an ocean about the fishing but i can't remember which one, sorry :P
