Controlled Assessment task titles for submission in 2014 for both GCSE Geography A and GCSE Geography B specifications are available to download from OCR Interchange.
Ofqual previously confirmed changes to be made to all GCSEs offered by all awarding bodies in England for teaching from September 2012. We are currently removing outdated specifications from the OCR website.
All teachers delivering OCR GCSEs should now be using the specifications marked as ‘from 2012’ after the subject e.g. for GCSE ‘Computing – J275 (from 2012)’.
Note: Past papers, mark schemes and examiner reports for outdated specifications are still available on the 'from 2012' version of the qualification and our past papers material finder.
The specification now includes the pattern of assessment for the four key themes for 2016 and 2017. Please see section 2.1 Unit B561: Sustainable Decision Making Exercise and section 2.3 Unit B563: Key Geographical Themes.
All other elements of the specification remain unchanged.
This qualification helps put the student on the path to becoming a geography specialist by giving them the skills and knowledge relevant to the modern age. This qualification covers the four key themes of geography - rivers and coasts, population and settlement, natural hazards, and economic development.
