Exam paper – what to do and what to answer.

Things you need to remember.

Tips during the exam.

Review of this session.

I can see the exam paper. What should I do first? Don’t panic. Despite the song on the previous slide (if you can hear it) it is not the end of the world as we know it! Spend a minute reading the instructions on the front page. Make sure you understand which questions you are going to answer. They are: Managing the Environment Managing Hazards Managing Tourism

Don’t panic. Despite the song on the previous slide (if you can hear it) it is not the end of the world as we know it!

Spend a minute reading the instructions on the front page. Make sure you understand which questions you are going to answer. They are:

Managing the Environment

Managing Hazards

Managing Tourism

Do not answer the question on "Managing Urban Areas." We have not studied this section, you are least likely to gain good marks on something you haven't studied!

Further tips and hints Go through the exam questions highlighting the command words (the ones that tell you what to do.) E.g. Explain how the level of development in a MEDC… Describe the effects of the volcanic eruption on your chosen case study.

Further tips and hints part deux Look at the number of marks available for each question. This gives you a clue about how much information is needed for a case study. For each section, the first few questions are point marked and are usually about some provided information. READ THE PROVIDED INFORMATION CAREFULLY – quite a few marks are provided for you if you can select information from the source and answer in the right place! Try to spend a maximum of 35 minutes on each section – each question has 30 marks available and should take roughly the same time.

Further tips and hints part 2 ½ Make sure that you have the following with you: Pens (more than one in case one fails to work.) Pencils (a pencil sharpener would be useful!) Ruler (often there is a question where you need to measure something then plot it on a map.) Rubber (we all make mis-steaks) A Highlighter – to highlight command words.

A Highlighter – to highlight command words.

Further tips and hints (the final frontier) Finish early – go over your answers. Check that it makes sense when you read it. Make sure that if you have started with an MEDC case study that you haven’t switched half way through and started talking about an LEDC. Check any plottings/measurements etc. Check you haven’t missed any questions out – sometimes they can be at the bottom of an information page and are quite easy to miss!

What next??? You should have some sheets in front of you – one being a commands words sheet that I have previously given you. The others are case study sheets. In pairs test each other on: Command words – what should you do if the question has it in? Case studies. What are they about and is it for LEDC/MEDC?

Final Brumby Geography PowerPoint slide…(Hurray!) If you really cannot answer a question leave it till the end – don’t waste time that you may wish you had later. Come back to it after you have answered the other questions.
