- you need to learn and understand processes in much greater detail at A-level for physical geography
- you are expected to use keywords in all your answers at A-level to get high marks
- at A-level there is much more to learn
- you are required at A-level to write longer answer questions with much more emphasis based on case studies
I only had 2 lessons a week doing Geography so a lot of my studying was outside of school in AS. The grade boundaries are really low, you need around 40% for a C but you do go into significantly more detail and you definitely must know all your case studies (not so great on my part).
Other than that, the transition isn't that hard in comparison to other A levels
