CE GEOGRAPHY (AT 13+ AND CASE)

scroll to discover

OVERVIEW

We offer Common Entrance (CE) geography examinations at 13+, as well as a scholarship examination (CASE) at 13+. Our geography specification¬† has been designed by a team of setters made up of experienced and dedicated Heads of Department from both prep and senior schools, and approved by ISEB’s Academic Committee for Humanities.

Our geography syllabus aims to stimulate pupils’ curiosity of the world while developing their knowledge of places, people, societies and environments. It also introduces concepts of sustainable development and skills specific to geography such as field work and map work.¬†

Geography for Common Entrance at 13+

Candidates taking Common Entrance geography at 13+ will have two assessments: coursework in the form of a Fieldwork enquiry and a written paper. The flexibility of the specification means that a programme of study leading to the exam may be spread over several years. When tailoring courses, teachers might find it helpful to know that the topic areas which are considered largely within the reach of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils have been italicised in the geography specification (see pages 10-15). 

Geography for Common Academic Scholarship at 13+

The Common Academic Scholarship Examination is designed to challenge the most able students at 13+. Candidates taking the CASE geography exam will sit one paper, divided into two sections, as well as submitting a Fieldwork enquiry as coursework.

See the geography specification below for more details.
