Geography at John Mason School

Course description

This is a subject which is now a reformed A level which means that the result of the AS exams does not contribute to the overall A level mark and grade. If a student leaves the course after AS then this new type of AS is worth 40% of the UCAS points of the full A level for University entry in 2017 onwards. If a student completes the two year A level course then it is only assessment at the end of the second year that counts towards the full A level grade.

Course content

Apart from classroom work and use of ICT, across both years, there is an exciting opportunity to spend 4 days’ worth of fieldwork and research when investigating the topics chosen. Fieldwork can be a great experience and allows you to apply your knowledge and understanding in a practical way.
