    It’s very different to higher. There is no taught content in the same way and it’s largely based on your own research projects. It’s a good course as you can choose to focus on the areas of geography that interest you however it really requires constant motivation throughout the year.

    I'm currently studying AH Geography and it is extremely different to higher, as it overall focuses more on skills than KU. There are two large piece of coursework which are on any topics that you choose. As I have unconditionals for my top choice universities, I'm struggling to motivate myself to complete my dissertation to the high levels of detail it requires. The actual written exam is pretty straight forward as the fieldwork section is easy to learn and statistics just requires a lot of practice. However the map work section requires you to think outside of the box and is very hit or miss. Despite all this, its been my favourite subject this year but is very time consuming (I wouldn't recommend if you are taking 3 advanced highers, I made this mistake). You also will probably get to go on a residential field trip which is great fun (I'm from Glasgow and we went to Arran). Its really good on the practical geography side and teavhes you lots of valuable skills for university such as referencing etc. I'd definitely recommend!! hope this helps x
