Introduction and Aims
Year 13 follow the Edexcel Geography B course to ensure that all pupils have the best chance of succeeding at their level, and to provide students with a mixture of traditional Geography and modern ideas. The course follows a simple modular structure and this will enable students to resit sections of the course if necessary next year. Decision making, fieldwork and interpreting geographical information are all important parts of the new course and students will use a rich range of resources from maps, videos, books, ICT and their own fieldwork. Many of the topics are new to the students so they will have to read around the subject using the books in the library. Paper four is based on the pupils' own reseach and so they will have to carry out extensive research using books, articles and the internet.
