GCSE Course Information and Revision Materials

We follow the Edexcel GCSE Geography A (2016) course at UVHS. Please click here  to access the specification for the course or alternatively  GCSE Geography Checklist to access the revision checklists you were given before Easter.

Sample Assessment Materials (practise exam questions) can be found here and we anticipate more to be added as the years progress. You can always ask for exam style questions from your class teacher 

A breakdown of what is on each paper can be found below. If you click on any of the words in bold/green e.g. Manchester, it will take you to a series of completed worksheets and notes that will help with your revision. There are also blank revision spider diagrams for you to print and fill in yourselves here.
