    I did not choose geography at GCSE so what would I need to learn over the holidays in order to pick it as one of my A-levels?

    You don't need a GCSE in geography to do the A level, and you don't need to go over the GCSE syllabus either. A lot of what you do at GCSE is re-covered at AS anyway.

    You don't need as you'll relearn the relevant stuff but it does help a lot if you've done it.
    If you know the topics you'll be covering I'd recommend buying a GCSE book on geography and learning those areas for the gcse.
    GCSE helped a lot for AS but not really relevant for A2 geography

    Generally you don't need to have studied Geography at GCSE in order to do it at A Level. At AS Level you'll cover the basic content (as not everyone will have done it before) and then go into more detail later on. I'd suggest getting a copy of the specification and having a read through it first though, just so you've got an idea of what you'll be doing
