GCSE AQA Case Studies with Exam Prep.

Urban Issues and Challenges

With the examinations in mind, we've carefully selected case studies which not only span the globe but also focus on countries with contrasting levels of development, providing a detailed synopsis of the location in question.

Every Case Study has been chosen for spec relevance, with countries representing a range of World Bank income classifications.

The Exam Prep is concentrated on the specification points and question types which call for the use of case studies – perfect practice in the lead up to exams.

As well as understanding the human factors at play, these geography case studies allow you to introduce synoptic links from physical geography topics into your teaching by comparing locations at either end of the development spectrum.

Give your students a deep understanding of the urban world through the study of specific locations, learn about the interactions between people and place, and the differing effects that urbanisation will have on developing and developed populations.

What do teachers say about this resource? (8804)

Brilliant, the appearance, layout, and content were all really well thought out. It follows the specification really well and ticks all of the boxes that this case study needs to as well as being in a straight forward and logical format which makes navigating around it really simple... It's a popular case study, and yet I've not seen a resource put together this well on it. It meets the exam board requirements brilliantly and includes practice assessment materials too!

I love this resource, the information included is relevant and extensive. The suggested answers are clear to understand and follow for students. The exam preparation section is very clear and is well laid out, enabling the quick collection of information [and] the extension question section is great - particularly for those aiming at grades 8/9 as it encourages thinking around the topic.
