I plan to take A level since i got the only A* in my year for the mocks and hope to do the same in the real exams, plus i lvoe geography, especially physical, but ive heard that it is boring.

Can you choose to do either physical or human? Or do you do both...Do you consider it a useful qualification

You get to do both physical and human geography modules, and in the second year (well for my spec at least) they kind of merge together and we do a module called "Sustainable Development", which is quite interesting but difficult too. AS is hardly taxing, with little extension from GCSE, in my opinion! Seems a bigger step from AS to A2 though.

Geography is the best subject on earth! Like Chardonnay and Sam, I am going to uni to study it this Autumn!

Useful qualfication? Of course! Where would we be without geography? Nowhere!

Geography is hella boring. I got an A* at GCSE but it's dull as... something very dull. The coursework in the A2 year is *****. Generally I regret taking it, though it's a guarenteed A :P

Boring? HELL NO! You could say I obsess over geography. The first year is kind of slow, but when you get to A2 you will LOVE it! How anyone can not love A2 geography is just beyond me

For me, Geography seems to have gotten worse since last year. I enjoyed most of AS, especially the human stuff (migration, population and settlement). For the physical, we did tectonics, rivers and coasts which were interesting enough. This year we are doing glaciation and ecosystems, which is the most boring thing in the world. It's just like biology, and i dropped that for a reason! In human, we are doing economic stuff, and urban/rural environments which is ok, but quite difficult in places

The only pure, pure physical I have is coastal processes and landforms. Most of my A2 course is mixed human and physical.

This year, we do two physical sections, two human and then stuff for the synoptic paper. Although God knows when we're going to do that. We have 9 weeks left at school and have only just started ecosystems and urban/rural relationships!

My synoptic paper is food supply, water supply, urban environment and the natural environment, under the title of Sustainable Development. Unit 4 is coasts and development. That's it! Coursework is GG6, done that already.

Our synoptic is 'People and their environments'. And then we have the physical and human papers. All in June! No coursework . I have my geog and psychology synoptics on the same day. Now that IS evil!
