Hi all,
I really don't understand the WJEC B Geography course (exams specifically). Like, what on earth are "themes", and how does the entire exam work. I went on the WJEC B Geography website to look for past papers in the hope that I would understand the exams better. However, I just got more confused. My teacher told us there were only 2 exams- unit 1, and unit 2. But then i go on the website it says "Unit 1- Question paper A", "Unit 1- Question paper B", "Unit 2- Question paper A" and "Unit 2- Question paper B". Are there 4 exams or something??????????? Can someone whose done the course or who just understands please help me, I want to start doing past papers. Thanks!

I think the different questions that you saw on the websites are for the tiers which are higher and foundation
And then the themes are 1,2 and 3
Where unit 1 it's basically explains housing
And since I haven't studied the other themes yet am not sure

Hi, not to worry! I successfully completed this course last year so will explain. Basically, there are three themes that you will study (theme1, theme 2 and theme 3) but these three themes will be squashed into two exams and a one piece of coursework. For this exam board, the first exam is called unit 1 and it is broken down into unit 1A (which tests your knowledge on theme 1 and unit 1B (which tests your knowledge on theme 2). The second exam is unit 2 which tests your knowledge on theme 3 alone. Unit 3 is simply your coursework. Hopefully you understand😂 and feel free to ask any other questions that you're unsure about.

Don't even bother revising for the synoptic paper.
