How hard is Geography A level?Watch
Lots of essays involved, i take the OCR exam board and in one of the papers there are 2 X 33 markers, 2 X 12 markers, 2 X 6 markers and lots of small mark questions. So if your friend does take geography be prepared for many essays.
The coursework is not that bad as you can research any topic you like. I did mine on regeneration and enjoying it!
Really good subject to take alongside economics as the majority of topics relate.
Not much maths, mainly basic such as IQ, LQ, UP, mean, mode, median, range....etc.
Overall, would recommend taking the subject as it is quite interesting.
