IGCSE and GCSE Geography Case Studies

Nearly every question in paper 1 (CIE IGCSE Geography) finished with a case study question worth seven marks. To achieve a level 3 answer in these questions you must include specific case study knowledge. Below is a summary of some of the main case studies that I teach that you might be able to use in your exams.

Settlements Topic

Population Topic

Migration Topic

Rivers Topic

Coasts Topic

Plate Tectonics Topic

Industry Topic

Tourism Topic

Agriculture Topic

Weather, Climate and Ecosystems Topic

If you have to talk about weather conditions in a tropical storm, talk about the Amazon Rainforest for tropical rainforests and the Sahara Desert for deserts.

Energy, Water and the Environment Topic

The last four case studies could also be used as case studies of industrial pollution in the industry topic.
