KS5: A Level Geography
The new Edexcel specification offers 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. The course is offered as a full A Level.
Geography students are required to:
- Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of places, environments, concepts, processes, interactions and change, at a variety of scales
- Apply knowledge and understanding in different contexts to interpret, analyse and evaluate geographical information and issues
