We have quite a lot of pupils who are better at geography than they are at literacy and often they do not apply their knowledge and understanding to the question.
We stress the need to answer all questions ( obvious to us I know!) We have spent time going over past questions especially focusing on the command terms, key words and terms in the syllabus. Make sure they can refer to named examples/ case studies.
We have also spent time on skills type questions regarding describe the location of.... describe the distribution of....... describe the changes on the graph.... etc. I have produced some basic help mats for these skills and am happy to e-mail them to you if you want them.
We have breakfast club on the morning of the exam to cover a few key points relevant to the exam that day. Many of our pupils are reluctant to revise, we do our best to encourage them!
