    • LEVEL 3 GEOGRAPHY REVISION
    • Your Exam is :
      • On Thursday 15 th September
      • It lasts from 1.30 to 4.30pm
      • It is in: Option B = the Hall
              • Option F = M14A
    • Remember to bring:
      • Pens,
      • pencil,
      • eraser,
      • coloured pencils (4),
      • ruler,
      • string
      • (all in a plastic bag). NO TWINK allowed. Paper is provided. Calculator is optional.
    • THERE ARE 3 PAPERS:
      • 3.1 ANALYSE Natural Processes in the context of a geographic environment (4)
      • 3.2 ANALYSE a cultural process (4)
      • 3.4 Select and Apply Skills and Ideas in a geographic context. (4)
    • SUGGESTED TIME
      • Do papers in order of your strengths
      • Aim to spend a max of 1 hour per paper
      • Watch the time carefully and try to finish each paper – this will be difficult.
      • This is your only chance to try out a technique so use it wisely!
    • 3.1 ANALYSE Natural Processes in the context of a geographic environment
      • Our Geographic Environment is:
      • SOUTH MURIWAI BEACH
      • The Natural Processes we study are:
      • Wave Action Long shore Drift
      • Wave Erosion Saltation
      • Aeolian Deposition .
      • The criteria that may be assessed include:
    • The size and extent of the geographic environment and the natural features of this geographic environment
      • Where is your Geographic environment?
      • What are the boundaries / size?
      • What are the main features and where are they on a map?
    • The natural processes that operate (and may interact) in the geographic environment
      • How do each of the processes work as a series of steps or actions?
      • Wave Erosion, Saltation, LSD and Aeolian Deposition.
      • How do 2 of these processes show interaction?
      • Suggest LSD and Saltation.
    • What is the distribution and formation of the natural features
      • How has the stack and a sand dune formed as a series of actions?
      • Why are they found
      • where they are?
    • What are the spatial variations in the operation of natural processes in the geographic environment
      • Name 2 processes that show good spatial variation and say where happen most and least
      • Suggest Wave Erosion and Saltation.
      • Explain why these variations occur.
    • What are the temporal variations in the operation of natural processes in the geographic environment
      • Name a temporal variation that occurs in a process
      • Suggest Wave Action
      • Say how this differs over
      • 2 named time periods
      • Winter and Summer
    • What human actions have occurred that modify natural processes, and the outcomes .
      • Name 2 processes that people have changed
      • Suggest Saltation and Wave Erosion .
      • Explain how people have changed these processes
      • Explain what the outcomes of these changes have been.
    • WHAT IS THE FORMAT?
      • There are 2 questions.
      • The first question has a choice. You do one of two questions
      • Each question requires an illustrated (use diagrams) essay.
      • The second you must do
      • This involves a diagram /map for part (a) and a written part (b).
    • The content includes:
      • The reason for the distribution of features
      • The formation of two features
      • Human modification of a process
    • 3.2 Analyse a Cultural Process
      • Our cultural process is:
      • TOURISM DEVELOPMENT
      • Our case studies are:
      • NZ ROTORUA
      • Overseas: WAIKIKI,HAWAII
      • Check you can locate these on maps. Criteria assessed include:
    • The operation of the cultural process
      • What are the 4 elements involved?
      • How does the process
      • work as a series of stages
    • The temporal variations found in the cultural process
      • What are the 4 stages of the butler model?
      • What are the characteristics of each stage?
      • What examples of each stage are there for both Rotorua and Waikiki?
    • The spatial variations found in the cultural process
      • Show different patterns of where TD happens the most and least in both settings.
      • Identify specific patterns of TD on a map of both settings eg linear, clustered.
      • Give reasons for the patterns identified above. Why there and not there.
    • Identify factors that have brought about change in the cultural process
      • Name an example of an Internal Factor for the Rotorua setting of each of:
      • Social, Political, Economic, Environmental, Cultural and Historical change .
      • Name an example of an External Factor for the Rotorua setting of each of:
      • Social, Political, Economic, Environmental, Cultural and Historical change .
    • The effects of the cultural process on people and places
      • Give examples of negative effects in each setting for each of:
      • Social, cultural, Economic and Environmental factors
      • Give examples of positive effects in each setting for each of:
      • Social, cultural, Economic and Environmental factors
    • WHAT IS THE FORMAT?
      • There are 2 questions.
      • For the first question you get a choice. Each question has 2 parts:
      • A. A map or diagram
      • B A written part based on the diagram.
      • The second question is compulsory. This question is an essay only.
    • The content includes:
      • Spatial variation in the process
      • The operation of the process
      • Effects of the process on people
    • 3.4 Select and Apply Skills and Ideas in a geographic context
      • For this you will be given a resource booklet. All answers must be based on this. Do not add to this information.
    • REMEMBER:
      • Read the question carefully and highlight key words.
      • Detail means to give specific information – case studies and/or statistics and/or names.
      • Try every question – guess if not sure.
