A level

In this section you'll find a range of web enquiries which cover the topics in your geography A level curriculum. The enquiries are split into three categories:

  • Human geography
  • Physical geography
  • Geographical skills and enquiry.

When you've finished an enquiry, hop over to the Quizzes section to test your knowledge.

GEO resources are mainly designed for you to use independently. However, each unit, lecture and tutorial can be used flexibly – you could work on your own, but you could also:

  • work partly in class, reviewing some of the content together with your teacher, following up online resources on your own then reporting back
  • work independently in pairs or small groups using technology to connect you.

Recent additions to GEO include content units on climate change in the Quaternary Ice Age, global governance and trade policies, the implications of China's changing population, wildfires, a case study of energy resource issues - the Chad-Cameroon oil pipeline. Other web enquiries include:

  • urbanisation and underlying processes
  • investigating the Index of Multiple Deprivation
  • investigating the London riots of 2011
  • investigating the regeneration of London's Olympic Park
  • Australia's arid landscapes.

Coming soon  units and quizzes on the geography of disease, coral reef ecosystems and a changing places case study of Sheffield ... so don't forget to check back to see what's new!

The GEO web enquiries and quizzes support and enhance learning at A level and GCSE. While the GA makes every effort to provide useful and relevant information to students, these are not a guarantee of achieving a particular grade in the final examinations.
