New figures from Ofqual show that entries for geography GCSE and A Level have continued to grow, and are now at their highest levels for at least 15 years.
This summer over 245,000 pupils sat a geography examination at GCSE level and almost 38,000 at A Level.
Dr Rita Gardner, the Society’s Director, said:
“This is wonderful news and continues the very positive growth in our subject since 2010.
I am delighted to see even more young people gain the important benefits that geography can provide them: key knowledge and understanding about people, places and environments; subject specific skills which help them investigate the world; and a geographer’s curiosity about the processes that are shaping our planet and our lives.”
The Society congratulates all of the geography teachers who have worked hard to encourage and support their pupils.
With over 750 Chartered Geographers now accredited, we caught up with two of our CGeog assessors, Angela Baker and Dr Stephanie Davidson.
