* Indicates the inclusion of synoptic assessment.
Students must complete all components (01, 02 and 03) to be awarded the OCR GCSE (9-1) in Geography B (Geography for Enquiring Minds).
Students develop an understanding and appreciation of the natural world they live in and why it looks the way it does. They study the rich diversity of landscapes and ecosystems which are changing through physical processes and human interactions.
There are four topics:
Fieldwork skills include understanding and applying specific geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to real-world physical geographical contexts.
Students explores the social, cultural, political and economic forces that make places unique, and how these change over time and space, particularly the growth of urbanisation and the challenges of feeding an ever-growing population.
Fieldwork skills include understanding and applying specific geographical knowledge, understanding and skills to real-world human geographical contexts.
This component draws on geographical knowledge, understanding and skills that have been developed in components 01 and 02. This synoptic assessment enables students to demonstrate their understanding of the connections between the different elements of the subject.
This component includes a decision-making exercise, here students can become critical thinkers and develop arguments.
