Course Outline: AQA Specification The AQA Geography specification offers a strong foundation in both physical and human geography and in practical applied skills. It addresses many themes which are, and will be, important during this millennium such as concern for the environment and an appreciation of global changes and inequalities. The specification allows students to develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of physical, human and environmental geography whilst also exploring the interrelationships between physical and human environments in a synoptic context. Fieldwork is important and there is an opportunity in the spring term for students to spend a week exploring geographical issues in the field in preparation for a geographical skills examination in June. Assessment and Deadlines The AS course culminates in two written examinations in the May/June exam period. The first exam is based on the physical and human geography topics, the second focuses on geographical skills.
