Beschreibung

Environmental Science A Level Course. The Environmental Science 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.

Das Beste: The purpose of this review is recognized the work of the staff at the college. Even though I enrolled only a week ago and I spoke with three different members, all of them were really nice at answering my questions. This was a great beginning for my course, which I am really enjoying now. Thank you.
