How to maximise your SDME marks

This blog post is for Year 11 geographers at Bethany School who are preparing for their SDME (Sustainable Decision Making Exam). I've put together two videos to help you in your final preparations.

Geographical Thinking
This first video looks at the 'geographical thinking' you need to demonstrate in the exam. By geographical thinking I mean the understanding of key concepts like sustainability, the hydrological cycle, hard versus soft engineering and the human-environment relationship as illustrated by the influence of human activity on the water cycle.

Exam Technique
This second video goes over the content of our final lesson.  There's nothing new here but it should be helpful to  go over the main points again!

And's the blooper!

Have a great exam everyone!  Get the result you are capable of and fulfil your potential!
