We hope you are looking forward to joining us in September to study A level Geography.
We follow the AQA specification.
You will have two exams; one physical exam and one human exam, and one Non-Examined Assessment- essentially a 3000-4000 word piece of coursework.
There are a number of things you can do in preparation to study Geography at A Level :
1. Developing as a geographer – through general reading around/ watching videos/listening to podcasts etc the geography subject to develop your geography knowledge and understanding.
2. Become a News Buff- Watch the news- BBC news between 6am-9am or at 6pm. Or get on the BBC news app? Other websites such as the Guardian, The Independent, The Times. Create a Geography in the News Diary of all things that are relevant to what you are studying?
3. Preparing for the A Level Course- Starting to explore the topics and their foundations in which they will be studied in the A Level Course.
To be a great geographer, you will need to develop the ability to think synoptically, being able to see the greater overview and how everything we study in Geography links together. Geography is not just about the studying people and landscapes, it is also the relationships that exists between people and their environment.
