We study the AQA specification. This specification focuses on the study of contemporary geography and the relationship between human populations over space and time with the environment. The examples we study are from a variety of scales from local to global. Integrated into the course are a variety of different types of skills; investigative, cartographic, graphical, ICT and statistical. The AQA specification is currently in draft format and is therefore subject to change.
