Students must complete two externally assessed units, which we set and mark. The exams last 1 hour 30 minutes and are each worth 37.5 percent of the final award. They are available in summer only. Unit 1 or Unit 2 can be taken in either the first or second year of the course.

Both exam papers are made up of three sections. Students complete all 3 sections. Section A is worth 50 percent; Section B and Section C are each worth 25 percent.

Unit 1: Understanding Our Natural World
Section A: The Dynamic Landscape
Section B: Our Changing Weather and Climate
Section C: The Restless Earth

Unit 2: Living in Our World
Section A: People and Where They Live
Section B: Contrasts in World Development
Section C: Managing Our Resources

Each section is made up of multi-part questions. The resource material used in each question may take a variety of forms, for example written text, statistical, and pictorial. Students must carry out extended writing in some parts of each question.
