Geography students are often overwhelmed by the amount of material they are expected to cover. The two main aims of the Geography revision seminars are to help students distinguish between what is important from information that is peripheral and to develop question-answering skills so that knowledge is used to best effect in the exam room. All the seminars are four hours in length and students can elect to do as many as they wish.
The aim of the Geography revision seminars is to develop exam technique and to revise key content. The hours will be spent working on board-specific exam preparation as follows:
Employment structures; patterns and measures of social and economic wellbeing; Globalisation; TNCs, FDI, NIDL; NICs; Changes in the location of economic activity; regional development within countries (core-periphery, cumulative causation, spread, backwash, convergence and divergence); the management of regional development.
Trade flows and trading patterns; International debt and international aid; The development of international tourism; The management of a tourist destination.
Hot Arid and Semi-Arid Environments
Hot arid and semi-arid climates; Landforms of hot arid and semi-arid environments; Soils and vegetation; Sustainable management of hot arid and semi-arid environments.
