Is anyone resitting this exam from January?
Any predictions - human or physical?
Feel free to discuss, share techniques or post me to a thread others are using

Why would you re-sit this and not the Geog1 - GEOG1 is so much harder!

My guess is physical, purely because January 2013 was human. Good luck!

I'm confused as to what you mean..
AS Level consists of GEOG1 (30%) and GEOG2 (70%)
A2 Level consists of GEOG3 (70%) and GEOG4A/B (30%)

AS will contribute to your overall A Level.
GEOG4A/B will depend on which exam your centre enters you for, either 4A or 4B will be worth 30% of the A2 Level.

Does that clear things up?

EDIT: re-read what you said and no GEOG2 will not count towards your A2 level.

Ahh yes, thank you very much!!!! For some reason my class believed that this 30% counted as part of the A2 level as well and there was no GEOG4 exam, for some reason that's what we were told. Thank you for clearing it up, i'll pass the info on :P

This exam has the A2 version of it as GEOG4A/B which is 30% of the A2, just like GEOG2 is 30% of the AS

The percentage weightings of Total A-Level are:

AS Modules:
GEOG1 - 35%
GEOG2 - 15%

A2 Modules:
GEOG3 - 30%
GEOG4A/B - 20%

Double the percentages to get the percentage of weighting of the as or a2 level separately. Just to settle any confusion
