In the run up to the mock exams next week, students are challenged to recall and revise their three year 10 topics for geography.
Students should be undertaking their own independent revision, using their yellow exercise books and the standard AQA text book issued, but they can also further their knowledge by accessing revision sites like s-cool and GCSE bitesize, using links on this website or purchasing a AQA revision guide (available in most Douglas bookshops).
They should also make use of the four lunchtime sessions being run by Miss Moore, Mr MacGregor, Miss Winskill and Mr Coole to go through the topics and exam techniques. Details of days and times for these can be found on the clasroom doors in the geography department.
You need to revise for the mocks the 3 topics:
Rocks, Resources and Scenery
Water on the Land
plus you should be familiar with use of OS 1:50,000 maps and a variety of other possible resources such as photographs, fieldsketches, graphs and diagrams. The exam will be an 1.5 hrs long, with 25 marks for each topic.
