Developing skilled and successful geographers


Engaging and contemporary issues-based approach


Our specifications offer an issues-based approach to studying geography, enabling students to explore and evaluate contemporary geographical questions and issues such as the consequences of globalisation, responses to hazards, water insecurity and climate change.


Supports progression to undergraduate level geography


The specification content gives students the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of physical and human geography, the complexity of people and environment questions and issues, and to become critical, reflective and independent learners.


Straightforward and flexible content structure


This specification has four equally-weighted content areas of study, offering both compulsory and optional content, assessed through three external assessments and one piece of coursework.
