Mock exams will be key to gaining a snapshot of how students are performing during the new qualification. Our GCSE Geography A Mocks Marking Training events will help you apply the new mark schemes, so you can be confident you’re getting a clear picture of their achievement.

  • highlight the assessment requirements of the new GCSE Geography A specification
  • explore the paper structure and new types of questions
  • review student responses to questions and explain how to apply the mark scheme.
