Geography - GCSE Geography OCR B.

Due to government changes to GCSE Geography the exam structure has changed (with

effect on exam papers taken from 2014 onwards).  The specimen paper is the most

reflective of the new style for the exam as it has the correct allocation of marks, length of

questions, timings and SPaG marks.  However each year the topics on the themes paper

change.  In 2015 the topics on the theory paper are: Natural Hazards, Rivers and Coasts,

Population and Settlement.  The 2015 topic for the SDME (Sustainable Decision Making

Exercise) is Economic Systems.

When using past papers please be aware of the following:

1 – The total marks for the paper has changed.

2 – The marks allocated for SPaG have changed. (2013 past papers were similar with SPaG marks increased).

3 – The timings of the paper have changed.

4 – The length of the questions has changed.

5 – The past papers give multiple choice within each topic.  This is no longer the case as all questions have to be answered now.

Also please note that some of the details in the resource booklets are copyright so cannot be reproduced.  Please see your teacher for help,

particularly with OS Map access.
