Course content

Each unit is delivered by teachers who are experienced in their fields. A wide variety of methods is used with up-to-date resources including videos, maps, photographs, textbooks and ICT packages. Field work is an integral part of the course and the local environment is used extensively. Geography is the best subject on Earth! That is what it is all about; your world, what it is like, the issues that it faces, the impacts that we have on it and that it has on us.

The exam syllabus to be followed is not yet known. All exam boards are still in draft proposals. However, all must have a core content equally divided between physical and human geography, a teacher-assessed independent investigation worth 20% of the total and a minimum of four days fieldwork.

Entry requirements

None. GCSE geography grade B minimum is useful, but candidates without it will be considered individually.


Year 1: Written examination

Year 2: Written enquiry
