Geography Topics GCSE or IGCSE
Length of course: 5 half-day sessions
Boards: Suitable for all boards
This course revises topics that are common to GCSE/IGCSE specifications in topic-specific sessions, as detailed below. Please note the following:
- The course will not offer board-specific exam practice and will not cover any coursework, investigation requirements, pre-release or decision making requirements.
- Each session does not necessarily include ALL of the content within a topic. For example, weather does not include Drought or El Nino/La Nina as it is not a requirement for all boards. Similarly, Ecosystems only covers tropical environments, whereas some boards will specify an additional option such as Polar or Coral reef environments.
- Students should bring their own textbooks plus any past papers/questions they are working with.
Students attending fewer than five sessions will be charged at a pro-rata rate.
