The Society congratulates all those students receiving their GCSE geography results today.
Published this morning, the results show that the number of students studying geography has risen by 4.3% from last year. 256,420 students sat an exam in 2018, the highest number in 17 years, making geography the 6th most popular subject at GCSE level.
Head of Education and Outdoor Learning at the Society, Steve Brace, said: “We are delighted to see the continuing rise in the numbers of pupils taking GCSE geography. We’d like to congratulate all the pupils receiving their results, and their teachers. Geography is the ideal subject to help young people become knowledgeable about their home nation, become outward looking and internationally engaged, and to develop the knowledge and skills to understand how the wider world works.”
