Environmental Studies FAST TRACK A Level
by NCC Home Learning, St Helens
The Environmental Studies specification enables students to gain an insight into the environment, and the scientific processes that control and affect it. The central theme is the development of an understanding of how different events and cycles within the environment interrelate, how they influence subsequent environmental events, the human impacts on these events and cycles, and the strategies that can be used to minimise the problems caused.
This is a complete revision of the AQA GCE Environmental Studies specification.
The AS course is divided into two units, the first of which is divided into 4 topics, and the second of which is divided into 3 topics. All of the topics will require reference to the textbook and selected websites. At the end of each topic is a set of key words. After studying the topic you should be able to give the meaning of each of these words. At the end of each topic there is a tutor-marked assessment which, when completed, should be sent to your tutor.
