Overview

COURSE - The GCE course builds on the work started at GCSE and coursework plays an important part in the work completed. We study a range of topic areas, incorporating a breadth of current events and topical issues; consequently independent research is a key element throughout the course and this skill is put into practice for the Research Report paper 3 and Coursework paper 4.

Successful Geographers will exhibit a wide range of transferable skills that include the ability to research from a range of sources, work independently on a number of topics, organise effectively their file and demonstrate an ability to record techniques, manipulate data, complete problems solving and decision making exercises and present and report their findings.
