Geography

Geography is the study of the Earth and the Physical and Human processes which shape it.

IGCSE Geography aims to encourage students to develop a sense of place and an understanding of relative location on a local, regional and global scale and an awareness of the characteristics and distribution of contrasting physical and human environments. The course does not simply require students to memorise facts but also fosters an understanding of some of the processes affecting the development of such environments, an awareness of the spatial effects of people’s interactions with each other and with their environment, an understanding of different communities and cultures throughout the world and an awareness of the contrasting opportunities and constraints presented by different environments.

The syllabus will cover the following specific topics: population dynamics; settlement; plate tectonics; landforms and landscape processes; weather; climate and natural vegetation; inter-relationships between the natural environment and human activities; agricultural systems; industrial systems; leisure activities and tourism; energy and water resources and environmental risks and benefits; resource conservation and management.

IGCSE Geography does not require excellent mathematical skills, but it is worth noting that students are required to produce long answers in English, so the subject may not be suitable for students who are struggling with their reading and writing skills.

NB – Geography is a compulsory course for students entering the college in G2
