GCE Geography

A world of exploration awaits

3 good reasons to choose our qualification:

  1. Up-to-date content includes cultural geography, climate change and sustainable development
  2. Undertake fieldwork as part of AS to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom
  3. Better assessment experience with three units at AS and three units at A2

This specification is for first teaching from September 2016.

In GCE Geography students investigate our ever-changing world and the dynamic forces that influence nature, culture and society. Through studying human and physical geography topics at AS level and A2, students explore:

  • the dynamic earth, its structure and how landscapes are created;
  • interactions between people and their environment;
  • the challenges of sustainability; and
  • the importance of attitudes and values.

They will also understand the interaction between societies and cultures and how geography affects our daily lives.
