Geography

Exam Board: Edexcel

Course code / Specification number: Geography B GB0

Level of qualification: GCSE

What will the students learn about?

The world in which we live is likely to change more in the next 50 years than it has ever done before.  Geography explains why and helps to prepare you for those changes.

Geography tackles the big issues:

  • Environmental responsibility
  • Our global interdependence
  • Cultural understanding and tolerance
  • Commerce, trade and industry

What skills will students develop and demonstrate?

  • Describe and Explain.
  • Use of figures and information.
  • Ability to compare and contrast.
  • To be able to support ideas.
  • Ability to evaluate and offer opinions.
  • To assess the impacts of range of events at both local and global scales.

How will students’ learning be assessed?

Learning will be assessed in three exam papers:

Paper 1 (Global Geographical Issues): 37.5% of overall grade

Paper 2 (UK Geographical Issues): 37.5% of overall grade

Paper 4 (People and Environment Issues – Making Geographical Issues): 25% of overall grade

What grades can students achieve?

Grades achieved can range between 9-1

After completing this course – what can students progress on to?

The transferable skills which geography fosters are an asset in the complex world of employment today.  Geography is about the future and encourages flexible thinking.  Geography is classified by the Russell Group as a Facilitating subject and these are the subjects most commonly required or preferred by universities to get onto a range of degree courses.  Facilitating subjects can help students keep their options open when choosing a degree and many of the top universities will have you to have at least one A-level in a facilitating subject when you apply.

Compared to other subjects, geography graduates are among the most employable.  They possess skills that employers look for.  In part this is because the subject combines a knowledge of science and understanding of the arts.
