    This is an excellent blog. Many thanks for maintaining it. Please could you send me the inserts for 2014 physical and human papers (higher). I am not able to see it in AQA site. Many thanks.

      Hello. Thank you for your comments. alas The file for the insert is so big it will not load onto this blog! I can only suggest asking at your school or college to borrow one. all the best

      Any last minute tips you got for me before my physical paper? Its on tuesday this week and I’m just now trying to predict the questions that may come up

      • geogteacher

        Hello. I never try to predict questions …. It only encourages risk taking….. It’s a Cliche but you can’t cut corners you need to revise it all.

    Hi this is excellent, I do all my geography revision here but do you have the 2015 paper for geography?

    • geogteacher

      I don’t think that has been released digitally yet. Sorry. Your teacher will probably have a paper copy though

      • Ann Stevens

        Hi this is great but do you have the 2015 physical paper for geography

  12. Kk

    Hello Sir,

    From the past papers from these years, what topics do you think are most likely to come (especially for higher)? I understand its best to learn everything, but I could learn some topics which were underlooked.


    • geogteacher

      Hello Kk, Alas there is NO way I would risk trying to play “guess the question”… Sorry, I am sure that isnt the answer you want to hear but you are right – learn the lot 🙂

  13. dainis.z

    Hi, I would like to know have got an idea of key topics that are likely to come up in the physical paper this year in may?

    • geogteacher

      To be honest I have no idea of what topics might come up in this years exam. I think trying to guess is dangerous as the best way to get a good grade is to revise everything!

    Is it possible for you to mark my answers of restless earth?
    If so, please give me your email address and I will send them to you.

    Thanks 🙂

  16. beckia

    Hello. Is it possible if I could send you model answers to get marked for the physical paper?

    • geogteacher

      Hello Beckia, Unfortunately I have my own classes and students to mark so I cannot accept any other work via the blog. However, I am sure if you handed in (without being asked) extra exam answers to your own teacher (s)he would be delighted!… one other thing you can do is try marking them yourself before you hand them. Then your teacher can also comment on your understanding of the mark scheme… Wishing you all the best for your exams this Summer 🙂
