This revised course is designed to help your students develop the abilities required to achieve exam success for the new WJEC GCSE Geography Specification B.

- Develop students' geographical investigative and analytical skills with activities that use real-place data, maps, photographs and ICT resources
- Provides case studies of real places at different scales and at different levels of development
- Extends students' learning and helps them to research geography in greater depth with 'Going Further' information and activities
- Encourages students to use their understanding of geographical processes and patterns to predict what might happen in the future with 'Geography Futures'
