2. Who this course is for

"Geography is highly valued by universities as an A Level choice. The Russell Group report pubished in 2011 names Geography as one of the eight facilitating subjects (subjects most likely to be required or preferred for entry to degree courses and choosing facilitating subjects will keep more options open to you at University). Additionally, in 2015 the Guardian named Geography the must have A Level. The content is framed by enquiry questions that encourage an investigative and evaluative approach to learning. The assessment integrates the assessment of geographical skills with knowledge and understanding. This specification will encourage students to make links between different geographical themes, ideas and concepts through synoptic themes embedded in the compulsory content, and it builds on the understanding developed at Key Stage 4, avoiding unnecessary repetition while also ensuring that learners new to the subject are appropriately supported."
