AS and A2 Level Geography at The Willink School

Course description

The course focuses on many current world issues, particularly man‟s relationship with his environment. The AS units will cover: Managing Physical Environments and Managing Change in Human Environments. A2 will go on to study Global Issues and Geographical Skills. The examination papers use a variety of data response, extended writing and essay questions. Stimulus materials include maps, graphs, data tables, diagrams, written material, photographs, satellite and other images, diagrams and statistical information.

There will be a compulsory one week residential field trip to the Gower Peninsular, South Wales in July of Year 12.

Entry requirements

You will be expected to have met the general entry requirements for the sixth form. You will also need grade C or above at GCSE Geography. Consideration may be given to pupils who did not take GCSE Geography but who have good GCSE grades across a range of comparable subjects (at least grade Cs in Science, English and Maths). For these students a bridging course would be recommended during the summer between year 11 and year 12.
