    they dont even do them for history and the geography ones are absolutely awful. just buy a cheaper brand and a revision book.

    I wouldn't bother, to be honest - I remember the examit sample answers for geography being awful - I highly doubt they'd even scrape a C, nevermind an A answer!

    You would be better getting a revision book (there was a good one when I did Geography, called Exam Skills by Sue Honan, that was in 2010, I'm not sure if it's still up to date!), or just writing up your own sample answers using the book and using those to study! The marking scheme for geography is quite clear, once you gauge what is and isn't an SRP (significant relevant point).

    Also your poll doesn't make a lot of sense! It's possible earthquakes and volcanoes can both appear, or neither can appear, and even if one of them appears, they aren't all that different (you are still describing tectonic movements, only they are different tectonic movements in this case). Plate tectonics may seem boring, but it's definitely a good one to revise, it's usually easy marks and although not a *guaranteed* question by any means, it's unusual for it not to be there as a 30mark.
