The new specification will excite students’ minds, challenge perceptions and stimulate their investigative and analytical skills.

Whilst new units have been added to reflect the world today, the specification has retained much of the topics students enjoy, including hazards and population.

Students will undertake a geography fieldwork investigation, which helps students expand their geographical skills.
