As a requirement for your son/daughter’s GCSE Geography course, your son/daughter has to attend two fieldtrips where he/she must plan, collect and then analyse the data. All of the work completed in both these fieldtrips will be required for the Unit 3 examination in summer 2018. It is likely that there will be questions on the Unit 3 examination that will cover methodology, location, data presentation techniques, analysis, conclusions etc and so this fieldtrip will prepare your son/daughter for this. The examination paper is worth 30% of your son/daughter’s final GCSE grade.
