WJEC GCSE Geography Specification B has evolved from the popular Avery Hill specification and shares the same ethos of student-centred geographical enquiry. The specification focuses the minds of students on the geographical issues that are relevant to their generation. Students have the opportunity to consider stakeholder views on a variety of geographical issues and, in doing so, become knowledgeable, yet critical, geographers.
