At GCSE we follow the OCR Geography B Specification.
It’s benefits are that it offers learners:
- A familiar approach to the subject as Geography B covers four themes of Geography – rivers and coasts, population and settlement, natural hazards, and economic development.
- A balance of theoretical and practical work, encouraging an active involvement in the subject.
- Learners are prepared with real skills (such as map reading) and the use of new technologies, like GIS, enquiry and analysis through fieldwork and research to assist geographical investigation; this helps motivate students as they can see how their skills fit into the modern world.
- There is a summary of the course details and assessment objectives below:-
- Students will complete two controlled assessments in Year 10 although the titles and subject change each year. One is based on independent research using secondary sources and the second is related to primary data that the students collect themselves during a field trip. In the past, field work has been to the Holderness Coast and the Burbage valley. For more information see the field trips section of the website.
