How would people go about drawing diagrams for a 40 mark human essay for AQA Geography A level?

  • 0 votes

I know it depends on the essay topic, but i always, always, always forget to draw a diagram which we are advised to do constantly as you get awarded for it. However, for human essays i find it incredibly difficult to draw something related to what i am talking about. I know you could draw map diagrams but realistically i don't think i would be able to spend time remembering and doing these in the exam. Does anyone have any ideas on this or how perhaps i could try and remember in the exam? any help would be much appreciated. thanks :)

I don't really find drawing diagrams would be useful, because its so difficult to incorporate them like you said. With Volcanoes it'll be easier to do because you can draw plate boundaries etc and for the theory you'll be writing about it anyway, so why not inegrate a diagram into the essay with annotations - it'll get you a higher grade in that section of the markscheme + it'll boost your understanding for the question.

i do development and globalisation for human option and there aren't any diagrams you can include - however not too sure about conflicts and world cities.

ecosystems - you can draw a psammosere if thats what you're talking about etc.

basically if you're talking about it in your essay and you feel there is a diagram that goes with it, then add it in :)

Thanks, that has been helpful :) I do World Cities and Development and Globalisation for my human topics and Ecosystems and Tectonics for the physical. To be honest I think i am going to answer a physical question for the essay, probs tectonics, which would make it easier to draw diagrams for a start but i am a bit sceptical about the quality of mine! oh well.....thanks for your help :)
