GCSE Geography

  • Teaching from: September 2016
  • Exams from: June 2018
  • Specification code: 8035
  • QAN code: 601/8410/3

This exciting course is based on a balanced framework of physical and human geography. It allows students to investigate the link between the two themes, and approach and examine the battles between the man-made and natural worlds.

Students who complete the course will have the skills and experience to progress onto A-level and beyond.

We’ve developed a range of resources to accompany the specification and your teaching, including specimen papers and mark schemes, subject-specific vocabulary and command words. There are more resources to come.

We created this specification with help from teachers, and we welcome feedback about which resources you’d like to see more of. Please get in touch with the team to let us know.
