    How Do You Get an A in Geography?! naxmax9

    Okay, I think geography is an easy enough subject. Short questions aren't too hard. The thing is I can never get an A in geography. I got one once in first year (93%) on my Christmas exam but that was it. I always get 77%-82% in geography and it's starting to get quite annoying. For example, I got a test back and I got 78%. Whenever I write a page long answer with good points I only end up with 8 or 9 marks out of 10. I always get about 6 marks on diagram questions. How can one get an A in geography? I really want an A in geography for the junior cert.

      You learn your stuff off by heart. To get an A you want to be nearly able to just recite the book

      Know the marking scheme. There's no point writing tons of info if you are not going to get the marks. I think it's was something along the lines of statement development explanation example but different teachers suggest different methods of answering. If you are losing marks on diagrams make sure everything is adequately labelled, including a title and frame.
