That Blue Square Thing - Geography Revision

Paper 1 - Decision Making Exercise

Paper 1 used to be a decision making exercise (a DME). I rather enjoyed paper 1, and marked it for years and years.

AQA B, the spec which sort of replaced AQA C doesn't really have a DME paper anymore. Which is a shame, but never mind - this stuff holds pretty true for most specs which do have DMEs I reckon so it might be vaguely useful for someone perhaps.

A DME tends to involve making some sort of decision (yes, really...) rather than using so much case study material. In lots of ways this paper often seems easier - but you have to know how to go about answering it to maximise your mark.

How to Pass a DME:

It's useful to think about how to answer a DME effectively. There are a few key things you can do to improve your chances of a higher mark.
