Through the Cambridge O Level Geography syllabus, learners will develop a 'sense of place' by looking at the world around them on a local, regional and global scale. Learners examine a range of natural and man-made environments, and learn about some of the processes that affected their development. They will also look at the ways in which people interact with their environment, and the opportunities and challenges an environment can present, thereby gaining a deeper insight into the different communities and cultures that exist around the world.
We are withdrawing the June exam series for Cambridge O Level Geography (2217). The last June exam series will be June 2019. From 2020, we will only offer Cambridge O Level Geography (2217) in the November exam series. We communicated this decision to schools in May 2016. We do offer a June and November series for Cambridge IGCSE Geography, so you may be interested in this syllabus as a possible alternative.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We provide a wide range of support so that teachers can give their learners the best possible preparation for Cambridge programmes and qualifications. For teachers at registered Cambridge schools, support materials for specific syllabuses are available from the School Support Hub (username and password required).
