I am going to make a wall display to inspire the 3rd Form to take Geography at GCSE. I would love to know your reasons for studying Geography.
- Why did you opt to take it at GCSE?
- Why did you continue your studies at A Level?
- For those of you who are currently studying a Geography related degree at uni – why did you pick your course?
- What skills have you gained from studying Geography?
- Why is it a relevant subject?

See you on Thursday.
