What is The Final Countdown?

The Final Countdown is a comprehensive set of resources to support students in the run-up to exams. The work of JB GeogTeacher inspired the initiative.

The Final Countdown has been created to provide students with weekly revision activities in the run-up to the AQA GCSE Geography exams in May and June 2023. Each set contains a six-week revision plan to support students in organising their revision. In addition, each week has a QR code to online resources, guides, quizzes and exam questions (including example answers and mark schemes) for students to use to prepare for their final exams.

Internet Geography Plus subscribers can access the six-weekly revision sheets now.

Each week, revision is divided into three sections: revise, quiz and exam questions.

Revise

Students revise an area of the specification, and the QR code will take them to a menu of pages on Internet Geography to support this. In addition, we’ve provided A3 templates for the students to use to structure their revision. These include knowledge organisers and mind maps. The image below shows examples.

Internet Geography Plus subscribers can download all knowledge organisers, and mind maps from The Final Countdown page on Internet Geography Plus.

Review

Review allows students to revisit their learning by completing online multiple-choice quizzes to test their knowledge. These are all available on Internet Geography for free. Alternatively, Plus subscribers could direct their students to the Internet Geography Plus MS/Google Forms quizzes to monitor progress (and completion!).

Exam Questions

Finally, students complete exam questions based on the area they revised the previous week. To support students, examples of answers to each question are published on each revision page. You can see a sample here.

Internet Geography Plus subscribers can access the resources here. However, if you’re not a subscriber, why not join to access this and over one thousand other resources? Please take a look at our subscription options.
