Geography A Level at The Leventhorpe School

Course description

At A2 students will build upon their studies from AS by developing their knowledge and understanding of Dynamic Landscapes through the further study of The Water Cycle and Water Security and The Carbon Cycle and Energy Security. A more in depth exploration of Dynamic Places will be provided through the study of the role of Global Superpowers and patterns of Global Development and Connections.

Unit 3 provides a synoptic framework which allows students to assess the role of the key players, their actions and future uncertainties/scenarios for each of the topics studied at AS.

In Unit 4 students will have the opportunity to select and study an area that reflects their particular geographical interests. They will carry out an independent investigation through the collection of fieldwork and the production of a detailed report which analyses and evaluates their findings.

Entry requirements
