Geography — A Level

Course information

Over the two-year course, you are required to study six different topics – three focused on Human Geography and three on Physical Geography. These topics include typical geographical units such as Coasts, Cities and Natural Hazards, and less typical units like Changing Places and Global Governance. Alongside this, students complete a coursework piece based on their own interests and also complete fieldwork in various geographical settings.
80% of your grade comes from two end-of-course exams, one on the Physical Geography units and one on the Human units. 20% comes from the coursework.
The exams vary from multiple choice questions all the way through to short-essay questions, and are designed not only to test your understanding of each unit but also how they cross over with one another.
