You will also get a resource booklet with photos and graphs in it. Some questions will require that you study the resource book carefully.

Check out the paper 2 (click to enlarge) front cover to the right. Your real exam will look exactly the same.
You will need a ruler, protractor, calculator and will be issued with some plain paper for workings out etc.
You will also be given a map insert that will be used as a focus to test your four and six figure grid reference skills.
If you don't revise for this, it will be a tricky paper and you have to answer all of the questions fully. You will have to make some quick calculations and not hang around.
There are often 14 pages of questions to get through although there are few extended answers. Most of the responses are brief, circle the correct answer etc etc. Check out the mock examination papers below.
