GCSE OCR B Case Studies with Exam Prep.

Topic 5: Urban Futures

With the examinations in mind, we've carefully selected case studies which not only span the globe but also focus on countries with contrasting levels of development, providing a detailed synopsis of the location in question.

Every Case Study has been chosen for spec relevance, with countries representing a range of International Monetary Fund development classifications.

The Exam Prep is concentrated on the specification points and question types which call for the use of case studies – perfect practice in the lead up to exams.

As well as understanding the human factors at play, these geography case studies allow you to introduce synoptic links from physical geography topics into your teaching by comparing locations at either end of the development spectrum.

Give your students a deep understanding of the changing urban world through the study of specific locations, learn about the interactions between people and place, and the differing effects that urbanisation will have on developing and developed populations.
