Fantastic results 11C - 100% pass rate - well done to all of you. All your hard work paid off and I am so pleased for you.

I was actually in Jaipur on the day that results were published and so missed out on seeing you - but I did ring Mr M to find out!!!!

Hope you have all had a really good summer and wish you well in your future studies / careers.

For those of you going on to do Geog post 16, you might be interested in coming along to a lecture being given by Dr Iain Stewart (BBC Power of the Planet series) at the end of September at KEGS. I'll be taking one of the TG minibuses along and it would be good if some of you could join us. I can promise you - it will be well worth you attending and it is relevant for both IB or A level. More details to follow.

Keep in touch

Paper 2 tomorrow

Thanks for your help in compiling the question bank this morning. I've put together the powerpoint with all questions onto the blog and you will see that the last two slides show which maps and climate graphs have come up and when.

I'll also put a posting with the other powerpoints that were available for you to refer to this morning and remember to go over the powerpoint already on the blog with various revision sheets 'Revision for paper 2'

It's silly to speculate - but....
revise the formation of a delta.
It's about time there was a big mark monsoon question.
The motor vehicle industy in Japan along with foreign investment by TNCs is worth going over.
learn the Vietnam dyke Development project - pg 188 in textbook
Rotterdam - functions and planning issues
Med Spain - economic and environmental advantages / disadvantages of tourism
Global warming - how to manage the consequenes at different levels (textbook page 201 - 202)

Remember to.....
  • Check through the paper cover to cover before you start to make sure that all sides are printed on.
  • Check that you have all the insert documents
  • See where the big mark questions are and make sure you allocate plenty of time to do them
  • Underline command words - in this paper particularly there will be 'using fig 2 and your own knowledge describe ...... and ......' So make sure you answer ALL PARTS of the question.
  • Remember 'SO WHAT' to make link statements
  • Only answer the Rotterdam / Europoort question for a major conurbation - don't even think about doing the Ruhr, Milan etc.
  • show that you have knowledge of case studies by throwing in examples and names. Prove what you know!!!

Mr Nailor will be starting the exam tomorrow as I'm teaching my IB group but I will try to be there for the end of it! You've covered the syllabus, done loads of exam question practise and so can do this - be confident!!!!

Good luck!

last posting

I do envy you guys able to enjoy the sunshine whilst some of us are in a hot stuffy L24!
I've uploaded the two revision presentations that I did before half term and also there are two that I am going to go through with you tomorrow - if you are really keen then you can have sneak preview and learn all the answers before the lesson.

Keep smiling - you have covered the entire syllabus, had lots of past paper questions and know all the exam tricks (those command words!!!).

Make sure you get some 'me' time today and I'll see you all tomorrow.
