The Geography AS Level reformed course will utilise a similar format to the legacy A level courses. Geography students are often overwhelmed by the amount of material they are expected to cover. The two main aims of the Geography revision seminars are to help students distinguish between what is important from information that is peripheral and to develop question-answering skills so that knowledge is used to best effect in the exam room. All the seminars are four hours in length and students can elect to do as many as they wish.
