Looking at all the study on studying, the best way to revise is to include self-testing (teachers can read this article here and thank you to @C_Hendrick on twitter for showing me it).
I am attaching a 20-25 mark test for each of our 6 topics. none of them of course, cover the whole topic, however they do at least give you an idea about what you DONT YET KNOW WELL ENOUGH. My advice would be to
- take the test
- check your answers
- revise the areas you were weakest at
- take the test again a couple of days later
- do some exam questions on the topic

Don’t cheat 😉
You need to know the problems of water supply in the UK (which is basically there is enough water for us all but lots falls in the north and west, whereas people mostly live in the south and east). Also you need to know about the case study of one reservoir in the UK. we look at Rutland Water for this … there is a lot of good information for this in the revision guide (here’s the page)
You could also test your knowledge with this simple but handy quick test video I found on you tube.
Also this powerpoint is a very useful one slide summary of the case study Managing the UK_s water linked to Rutland
Finally here is an exam question from 2013 higher paper you could attempt to text how well prepared you are ….
“Discuss the issues which result from building dams and reservoirs” (8 marks)
Haven’t seen this one before. Its brief and good 🙂
Here’s the one I normally show, which is also good. It is though mainly aimed at AS and A level
Revising for your exam by answering past exam questions is THE best way to prepare and to get a better grade than in your mock.
Below are the actual exam papers, the inserts (which is the booklet of maps and photos you get with your exam) and the mark schemes too. Please note the inserts for 2013 and 2014 are too big to upload here. you can either borrow a copy form me or find on the AQA site
Please feel free to email or hand in any exam questions you have attempted and I will be more than happy to mark them for you.

This is ace. Wolves were introduced back to Yellowstone National Park 70 years after they were last there. As a result the whole ecosystem was altered.
We often bang on in lessons about linking ideas together and how in real life there are so many knock on effects. Well have a look at this video and see for yourself
More wolves means less deer (especially in the valley floors where they are easier to hunt down).
Less deer means less grazing. Less grazing means vegetation can grow more.
More vegetation means less soil erosion. Less soil erosion means less material in the rivers.
But more vegetation on the valley floors also means more stable river banks. More stable river banks means straighter rivers in places.
The animals the vegetation the ecosystem and the rivers are all interlinked
Here is the powerpoint from the lesson. We covered: why rivers flood, meanders & ox bow lakes and the Rutland Reservoir case study
