Our Geography revision programme for IGCSE is modular in structure. To produce a bespoke revision course students simply select the topics they require help with and indicate what they are on the registration form. Extensive use will be made of relevant past questions and time will be devoted to developing practical skills such as those of map and photograph interpretation.
