We would like to recommend you do one or two of these.


Read or listen to a good 'Geography' book

Take this opportunity to read a book with plenty of 'Geography'. It will help you to synthesise the content of the course and to develop those extended (essay style) answers. Here are our suggestions →

If you haven't yet, now is the time to read or listen to Factfulness. Your Theory of Knowledge teacher will thank you too! You could order a paper copy, download it for Kindle (or similar) or listen to it via a service such as Audible. There is no need to read it in English if you do not want to - it is available in 13 languages.


Write the first draft of your Extended Essay

Extended Essay

All of you... not just those of you who were sensible enough to do a Geography Extended Essay should be writing a top-quality first draft during the summer break.
