Environmental Studies (2440)

 A-level Environmental Studies 2440 gives students in-depth knowledge of, and informed insight into the environment and the processes that control and affect it. 

Environmental Studies is a worthwhile choice for students who are particularly interested in studying Biology, Geography and Environmental Science or who are considering a career in ecology, countryside management, wildlife conservation, marine biology and planning. 

There are four units in the specification – two at AS Level and two at A2. All the units are assessed by written exam. 

A-level Environmental Studies builds on knowledge gained in GCSE Science subjects or Environmental Science. Students who have studied these subjects at GCSE will be well placed to study A-level Environmental Studies.


The last January exams for AS and A2 were in January 2013.
The exams are now only in June due to Changes to A-levels.
