This course enables learners to develop a ‘sense of place’ by looking at the world around them on a local, regional and global scale. Learners will examine a range of natural and man-made environments, and study some of the processes which affected their development. They will also look at the ways in which people interact with their environment, and the opportunities and challenges an environment can present, thereby gaining a deeper insight into the different communities and cultures that exist around the world.

Advice from our teachers

In order to succeed in IGCSE Geography, we recommend students set aside five to six hours a week to study. It is important that students regularly keep up with the readings and the course activities in a timely manner. And that they contact their Pamoja teacher if they fall behind or need help with assignments.

Field Work

Students taking this course will sit Paper 4 Alternative to Coursework, rather than complete the coursework Component 3. Regardless, Cambridge International expect educators to embed practical techniques and investigative work into their teaching. Students are expected to have some practical experience of geographical methods, even if limited. Our course provides support for the essential enquiry skills throughout the teaching of the topics throughout the course. Lessons contain regular opportunities to apply skills and techniques used in geographical enquiries. Schools wishing students to enrol onto Pamoja Taught IGCSE Geography should ensure that students are supported in safely carrying out any fieldwork undertaken, in order to give students the best possible preparation for their examinations. Students will still be expected to review and understand all the fieldwork and enquiry techniques, even if they are not able to perform them.
