Big revision guide – part 3


All your revision key word lists in one place for every topic are attached. Please note there is no way I can cover every single word you need to know for the exam here. The list is not exhaustive. Also I have tried to avoid duplication so some words will be key for more than one topic but only appear in one list.

the secret with key words is not just to know what they mean but to be able to successfully use them in an exam answer. so also practice using them by writing out full sentecnes with key words in or by going on to exam papers and finding questions you can use them in.

The link for them are hereKey words 3.4 desertificationKey words 3.3 waterKey words 3.1 & 3.2 ecosystemsKey words 2.4 Climate changeKey words 2.3 Weather and ClimateKey words 2.2 rivers and river managmentKey words 2.1 coasts and coastal managmentKey words 1.3 glob and devtKey words 1.2 urban rural UKKey words 1.1 global cities

Big revision guide – part 2


All your revision personal learning checklists (PLCs) in one place for every topic are attached. These break each topic down into small questions that help you realise what you know and what you don’t know. They don’t provide such an overall linked up way of revising as the skeleton cards (which you can find here) but they do give you the chance to revise detailed manner and see what you need to do first by pointing out gaps in your knowledge.

Personally i would start by using these to check what I think I know and think i dont know, then use the skelton cards and then come back again when id finshed the topic use the PLC once more.

The links for them are here Eduqas GCSE B Geography PLC

Big revision guide – part 1


The link below gives you a breakdown of each topic in the GCSE you need to revise. All your revision skeleton revision guides in one place for every topic are attached. These break each topic down into 4-6 questions. They aren’t as detailed as a PLC (which you can find here) but give you the chance to revise in a more joined up and linked together way by seeing the work in larger chunks. I advie using them by taking each question or chunk one at a time and revising that and then testing yourself on what you have learnt. Or get someone else to test you; I know your parents or carers would love to assist you if you asked.

Birds and Stakeholders and Coastal Management

birds net cliff norfolk

Simply read this BBC article from earlier in the months and as long as you understand how it shows how different people (called stakeholders) can have different opinions about the best way to manage coasts you will have learnt a very useful thing for your GCSE exam

  • What does the council want to achieve with the nets?
  • Why is the RSPB angry with the nets?
  • Who do you think is correct here?

Britain’s disappearing coastline


There was this excellent article in the Guardian last month. Click here to read it

Read the whole article before answering these questions (otherwise you will find them much harder to answer). Please either write out the questions in your book as well as the answers or answer in whole sentences. If you don’t do one of these two things, you will find it very hard to revise from this work

  1. What does “hold the line” mean for coastal defence?
  2. How much could sea levels rise around the UK cost by the end of the century?
  3. What does this phrase from the 6th paragraph mean” The plans to hold the line would cost more than the property and land that would be protected.”?
  4. Put this phrase from the 7th paragraph into your own words “the government only currently funds defences with at least a 6 fold cost-benefit ratio”?
  5. How many properties are currently at significant coastal flood risk” and how many is this likely to increase to by 2080?
  6. What other parts of our key infrastructure are also at risk from rising sea levels in by 2080?
  7. Why do you think the government is warning people about these possible risks to their property?
  8. Sum up what this article has said in 4 short bullet points

Coasts and coastal management – Skeleton revision cards & key word lists

Burton Bradstock

Here is another set of revision resources for WJEC EDUQAS GCSE Syllabus B. For each of the topics there will be a skeleton revision card and a key word list. The idea is that by using them both you will have revised the whole topic. You could work out all the key words first and then use them to help you answer the questions on the skeleton cards or you could start with the cards and work out the key words as you go along. Be aware that summing up each topic with just 4-8 questions means that you will need to spend a lot of time on each one to cover the whole topic properly.

Key words 2.1 coasts and coastal management

I would really appreciate your feedback on what you like and would like altered and improved. Thank you.
