GCSE 9-1 Geography AQA

Content update – February 2021

We’ve added new Exam Pulse 2021 content to your GCSE Geography AQA subscription, giving you access to assessment and revision support based on the latest feedback. Assessments may look different from how you expected this year, but we’ve worked hard to make this content as relevant as possible, and we hope you find it useful. 

This content gives students top tips, and suggests resources to develop the skills and understanding that may need improvement. It also includes resources to help students look after their well-being and build resilience.
