Course Content

This stimulating revision course will focus on key aspects of both the AQA and Edexcel Geography syllabuses. The content of the core modules overlaps and will be revised alongside each other. As there is such a wide variety of optional modules between both syllabuses we have picked the most popular ones to include in the course based on our knowledge of their popularity. In some instances, the content does not overlap and will be taught separately. For students not being taught, this time will be used to independently practice and develop skills they have learnt within the classes. The first two days will cover AS and A-Level modules, and A-Level only modules will be tackled in the final two days.

Essay planning, structure and writing will be an integral part of this revision course. The course tutor, Michelle, will guide students through the essay writing process and provide them with handy tips to improve marks. Moreover, these essential skills can be transferred to any essay based subject. Key maths and geographical skills will be integrated throughout the teaching. Case studies are a fundamental part of Geography. However, due to there being so many case studies available, and in order to not confuse students by going through case studies they are not familiar with, the course will not focus on revising individual case studies. Instead, Michelle will teach students how to successfully integrate and analyse case studies in order to maximise marks.
