GEOGRAPHY

AS/A2

Is it for me?

If you have an interest in studying people and places and enjoy finding out about how the two interact then this could be the course for you.

What will I be doing?

You will be developing your research, practical and essay writing skills through projects and fieldwork.  You could explore areas such as river, glacial, coastal, rural and urban environments as well as ecosystems and hazards. Fieldwork is an important part of the course.

How do I pass the course?

You need good attendance and punctuality throughout the course to pass each module and improve your skills.  By the end of Year 12 two modules, including a fieldwork investigation will be completed counting for 50% of the final A Level mark. Year 13 includes a further two modules.

Where will it take me?

Geography provides a bridge between the arts and sciences and therefore provides you with a wide range of skills relevant both to employment and to higher education where a wide range of courses are available to you.

How do I get on the course?

GCSE Geography is not essential but a minimum number of grade Cs at GCSE are required. For further information talk to your teacher or attend the Post-16 Open Evening.
