2017-2018 Year 11 OCR B Revision 4) Christmas Mock Booster for OCR B Specimen Paper WITH ANSWERS

2017-2018 Year 11 OCR B Revision 4) Christmas Mock Booster for OCR B Specimen Paper WITH ANSWERS

Seen opposite is the Christmas Mock Booster in the lead up to our mixed Paper for 2017. It has listed the human exam questions listed we are focusing on in the booster. The paper will be a mix of Component 1 and 2; namely Urban Futures, Resource Reliance, Physical fieldwork, Climate Change and Ecosystems. The specimen papers can be found below: http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications/gcse-geography-b-geography-for-enquiring-minds-j384-from-2016/assessment/ The starter begins with a quiz on questions of low order coming up in the exam. It then focuses on students marking a model example I have written on the following question: CASE STUDY – ways of life in cities. Examine how ways of life vary within one LIDC or EDC city. Name of LIDC or EDC city. [8] The question is meant to trick them as it is written for an AC so therefore will receive a L1- 1 mark or no level (depending on how harsh you want to be). The students then try to write the question. The next question is taught using the acronym GCSE (General Comment Specific Example) and can be found below: (iii) Describe the pattern in predicted population change between 2001 and 2025 for cities in the EDCs shown in the table. [3] All questions shown in the first slide are taught and MODEL ANSWERS given using strategies we use within the department, such as 'So What?' and BUG. The plenary is a game of Kahoot with instructions on how to set up an account.
