Get a better GCSE grade by testing yourself

markscheme

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

  1. take the test
  2. check your answers
  3. revise the areas you were weakest at
  4. take the test again a couple of days later
  5. do some exam questions on the topic

Mock exam preparation – the Human Paper

mock-exam-sign

Your geography GCSE mock in February is a human paper. So the topics will of course be:

  1. Changing Urban Environments
  2. Development Gap and
  3. Tourism

You will need the PLCs to start your revision. Click here

You could use the skeleton cards I have drawn up

Then you need to practice some exam questions: Human higher papers are here and foundation ones here

Anything else you need just email me 🙂
