  • Urban issues and challenges - urbanisation, urban growth in LIC/NEEs (Rio de Janeiro), urban change (Bristol), urban sustainability (Freiburg)

  • Changing economic world - global variations in economic development and quality of life, the development gap, developing economy case study (Nigeria), UK development over time

  • Challenge of resource management - importance of resources, opportunities and challenges of food, water and energy in the UK, global energy issues

What content does this cover?

Geographical applications

 
  • Issue Evaluation - a pre-release booklet regarding a specific Geographical issue 

  • Fieldwork - questions that relate to the Seaford field trip in February

  • Geographical skills - understanding and interpreting Geographical information

How should I revise?

The physical paper requires a strong knowledge of a variety of case studies, so being able to apply this information to longer form questions is vital. 

Using a variety of techniques as suggested below to help remember important facts, before applying them in practise paper form, will be a really effective way to prepare. 

The natural hazards section will ask you to demonstrate knowledge of processes (how natural hazards form), their impacts (primary and secondary) and how they impact different countries differently (HIC vs LIC)

The living world section will require knowledge of ecosystems, and being able to discuss the opportunities and challenges of the desert and tropical rainforest

The physical landscapes section will require detailed knowledge of the both transport and erosion, and how they create different landforms. You will need to know the positives and negatives associated with different ways of managing these different environments. 

How should I revise?

The human paper requires a strong understanding of the opportunities and challenges within a variety of different human situations. Being able to develop your points effectively (especially with regards to consequences), will help enormously in achieving the better marks in long form questions. 

The urban issues and challenges section will require in-depth knowledge of Rio, Bristol and Freiburg - what are the different challenges that each place faces, and how are they addressed? 

The changing economic world section relates to development - how do we measure and track development, why do countries have different levels of development, and how can countries reduce the gap? Knowing about Jamaica’s tourism industry is key here. Knowing how Nigeria has changed in recent times, and how it has been impacted by the presence of Shell, is hugely important. 

The challenge of resource management section looks at the challenges and opportunities related to different resources (food, water, energy) in the UK & energy in the wider world  - why do these challenges exist? How can they be overcome? 

How should I revise?

Geographical skills are embedded in our lessons right from Y7; however, trying out practice questions would be an effective way of topping up your knowledge. A lot of the Geographical skills questions relate to Mathematical skills in handling and interpreting data from graphs and charts, so if you are revising your Maths effectively, you stand to do well in Paper 3. 

The issue evaluation section will be dealt with in lesson; you will receive specific guidance on this after the pre-release booklet comes out. 

The fieldwork section will relate to our trip, and the analysis we complete after the trip. If you do a good job on your fieldwork project, you will be in an excellent position to do well. 

The Geographical skills section will examine your ability to complete and understand different forms of graphs and charts, and derive useful information from them. The best way to master this is to complete practice questions.
