Just looking to brush up your knowledge in a specific area for your GCSEs? Try out revision notes below.

Agriculture

Archaeologists suggest that it was agriculture that changed the fate of humans from the rest of the animal kingdom. Examine the various kinds of farming through time and across the world in terms of what’s grown and reared, methods, the rise of organic farming, and the economic challenges associated with being profitable in the modern world.

Coastal landscapes

With nearly half of the world’s population living on coasts, understanding the processes, landforms and management of coastal landscapes is more important than ever. Get a better understanding of landforms, erosion, mass movement, weathering and engineering challenges and solutions.

Cold environments

Cold environments are typically found in high latitude areas like the poles and the tundra, and in mountainous regions. Though not typically favoured environments for human habitation, they are important environments with flora and fauna sporting unique and distinctive adaptations. Learn more about this challenging environment here.

Desert environments

Characterised by extreme temperatures and very little rainfall, learn about deserts around the world including the impact of human activity in creating deserts and the importance of preserving natural desert biomes.

Development

As a consequence of advancements over the centuries, the human race is in a state of accelerated development. Learn more about contrasts in development across the world and what this means for larger issues such as global climate change, population growth and density, and resource sustainability.

Ecosystems

The Earth is home to a number of ecosystems, large and small. From urban gardens and ponds to wetlands, the frozen tundra and tropical rainforests, familiarise yourself with the different ecosystems and the remarkable characteristics and management requirements of each.

Physical

The physical environment of Earth is complex, dynamic and in a state of flux. Get a solid understanding of topics including climate change, changing landscapes, ecosystems and biodiversity as well as our role in managing the impact of large-scale physical processes.

River landscapes

Rivers have been tied to human existence for millennia. Now, get a better understanding of river landscapes including the upper, middle and lower course and all the processes, landforms and management requirements associated with each stage.

Urbanisation

With the world population on the rise and more people living in towns and cities, explore the causes and effects of urbanisation and the challenges and opportunities this phenomenon presents.

Weather & climate

The Earth has complex and different climatic conditions that are influenced by and have an influence on regions around the world. Learn how these patterns interact with weather conditions, especially in the context of rising global temperatures, and what it means for the environment and humans.

A-Level Geography Revision Notes →

Like our GCSE notes above, these are specifically aimed at helping A-Level students to brush up their knowledge. This section is a work in progress so check back regularly for more notes.

Human

Learn about the impact of human activity on the environment and our responsibility to sustainably manage resources. Closely examine issues of urbanisation, global development, and the relationship between population, economics and natural resource demands.

Physical

Dive into the physical world of Earth’s mega processes, from tectonic activity, tropical cyclones and climate change to coastal, river and glacial processes, and ecosystems and the impact of human activity on them.
