Geography 5th Year Weekly Grinds
What will be covered in these Leaving Cert Geography Grinds?
Leaving Cert Geography is not about essays and waffle-like many students think. Chief examiners require what are called SRPs (Significant Relevant Points). These are what dictate the marking scheme and are the key to unlocking this subject. By the end of these Leaving Cert Geography grinds, you will have multiple essays with 15 SRPs in each. You will receive a pull-out sheet at the end of each essay in which you can write your 15 SRPs using the notes and a trigger-word section. Topics covered are:
- Plate Tectonics
- Earthquakes & Volcanoes
- Folding & Faulting
- The Rock Cycle
- Karst Landscapes
- Landform Development
- Human Interaction with Surface Processes
- Map Reading
- Aerial Photograph
- Regional Case Studies
- Elective – Human & Economic
- Option Unit
