Course Details

  • Applying for A Levels: When you complete your application form, you can apply for just one subject, and add the other subjects into the 'Career Path' section. For example, complete the application for Psychology A Level, and type 'Sociology A Level and English A Level' in the 'Career Path' box. You do not need to complete multiple applications for each subject. If we need more information, we will contact you.

What to expect from the course

Over the two-year A Level Geography course, you will 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, you will complete a coursework piece based on your 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.

As part of the course, you'll also have the opportunity to take part in an exciting and ever-changing range of trips, ranging from local coastlines to far-flung World Cities.

A Level Geography is a course that equips you for being a citizen of the world and gives you an awareness of the greatest challenges our world faces.
