Geography A Level at Brompton Academy
The A level is studied over two years. The course is divided into three main areas; Physical systems (students will study coastal landscapes and the water and carbon cycles), Human interactions (students will study Changing spaces; Making places and will also explore Global Connections and the flows and processes that occur at a global level) and Geographical debates (students will study two dynamic issues that face the planet critically exploring the interactions between people and the environment). As part of the course students will also undertake a geographical investigation and present an assessed write-up of this.
You will need to have achieved 5 A* - C Grades at GCSE to include Grade 5 English and Maths. It is desriable, but not essential that students have studied Geography at GCSE level.
Grade A* – E awarded. There are 3 external examinations at A2 accounting for 80% of the final mark. The Geographical investigation will account for 20% of the final mark. The external examinations will take place at the end of the course.
Completion of the A level qualification will give between 16 and 56 UCAS points, to be used to gain entry onto a degree course or entry into the workplace.
