For things where they give you a key or say complete the key then construct eg precis maps, transects, are you allowed to just use coloured pencils rather than come up with symbols?

I donít do geography so donít know for sure but Iíve heard for other subjects (eg math) they scan in b&w - hence why we use black pen not blue so maybe donít just in case or email your teacher

Coloured pencils are on the list of equipment for the exam

I'm using Sao Paulo as a case study for a mega city.
I have a few responses as to challenges (fixing pollution, housing, education, medical)... will this be enough for an essay or should I be using more responses???
If anyone has better responses please suggest them!! :D

As long as you have enough detail to evaluate/examine or whatever the question says. The expected length is 800 words, and I doubt that this year's urban one will be on mega cities. Either world cities (hasn't been asked for a fair few years) or urban dynamics (culture of place hasn't been asked yet, and this area of the topic has much more room to ask a wider range of questions). I'm hoping that it's urban dynamics tbh so that the other 2 qs are good and then urban dynamics won't be in short answer

Thanks so much  :)

Hello,

Anyone know of any good resources that help with geo? Like any books, podcasts, websites etc. I'm pretty keen on acing this subject and need some extra resources just to get ahead.
Also, I don't do maths, therefore my skills aren't my forte. However, I feel I should need to nail them because I'll get more marks (obviously). Does anyone have any tips as to how to improve skills. I know an obvious answer is "practice" but is there anything in particular that someone who is really good with the skills does?

Cheers

I found that there weren't that many resources since it's such a small subject. The main thing is to keep up to date with the news for your case studies (eg the great barrier reef) and do practice questions from past exams. Make sure that you seek feedback on your answers as well, using the marking criteria or even giving them to your teacher.

As for skills, maybe try making a list of them and the tricks involved with each one? Then any you struggle with the most you can ask your teacher to go over in class (there is no point learning stuff that everyone already knows). I don't really have any particular tips, you are right in saying that it's practice since skills is about applying concepts/methods to situations.

Hope this helps :)
