New draft 2016 GCSE Geography (9-1) specifications now available
The draft specifications and sample assessment materials have now been submitted to Ofqual for accreditation.
Based on feedback from Ofqual as part of the accreditation process, we’ve made updates to our Geography A and Geography B draft specifications and sample assessment materials.
You’ll be able to find our new Pearson Edexcel draft GCSE Geography specifications (version 2) for first teaching September 2016 (2-year courses) on these pages:
- Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9-1) in Geography A - Geographical Themes and Challenges
- Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9-1) in Geography B - Investigating Geographical Issues
Please note: These draft qualifications have not yet been accredited by Ofqual; they are currently being reviewed by Ofqual. They've been published to enable teachers to have early sight of our proposed approaches to GCSE Geography. Further changes may be required and no assurance can be given at this time that the proposed qualification will be made available in its current form, or that it will be accredited in time for first teaching in September 2016 and first award in Summer 2018.
