AS and A2 level: Geography at Casterton College Rutland
Why study Geography? Because it’s worth it. You hopefully enjoyed studying it at GCSE and want to take it further. You want to develop your skills in the field and your abilities in the classroom (and in the exam) and to think critically about issues in the world today What will I study? Geography at A level builds on your learning from GCSE but does so in more detail-as you would expect. There is familiar and new material to come to grips with such as Rivers and Population along with Energy, Hazards and Meteorology. You will find the familiar Physical/Human split as well as demands made on you to collect and interpret information and to think about the results actually mean. How will I study? By reading, by questioning by doing, by listening, by seeing for yourself in the field and probably by getting your feet wet.
C in English required. C in Maths preferred. C in Geography if taken.
Progression. Students have gone on to do Environmental Science, Planning, and Oceanography amongst other things. It develops skills which are widely applicable and valuable and relevant to unrelated areas such as business and management. Some past students even end up teaching Geography.
