How to get a A* in GCE (A-Level) Geography?

GCE Geography demands students to detailed factual, place-specific knowledge and as well as solid understanding of geographical theories and concepts. Synoptic, essay-based questions are particularly challenging. Students are expected to appreciate, and demonstrate in their essays, the fact that different geographical issues processes are inter-related. Very often, full prose essay response involve appreciation, and consideration of how the environment has to be stewarded to ensure a just, sustainable future.

Geography fieldwork investigation and geographical research are also important components in GCE (A-Level) Geography. Students are expected to acquire, through planning and conducting fieldwork investigation and independent research, different geographical and statistical skills for interpreting and analysing numerical and spatial data.

How CANA coaches students to achieve a A* in GCE (A-Level) Geography

In CANA’s GCE Geography lessons and courses, we focus on explaining the key theoretical underpinnings and establishing synoptic links between different topics. To facilitate a firm grasp of geographical knowledge, we discuss in class detailed geographical knowledge of established cases and equip our students with research skills for sophisticating the case study materials they have been given in school.

To help students acquire strong geographical and statistical skills, we provide guidance for planning and preparation of a fieldwork-based research that is theoretically-grounded. The fieldwork investigation allows applications of a range of cartographical, graphical and statistical skills. Students will also be guided to consolidate and analyze field-trip data collected, and to produce field-trip reports according to the assessment requirements of respective specifications.

A fieldwork-based research with both a theoretical basis and a locational context is a pre-requisite for tackling methodological questions, including discussion of advantages and limitations of various sampling techniques, data accuracy and validity issues and, most importantly, how various data could be "mapped" to enable analysis of geographical patterns.
