Welcome to the InterHigh IGCSE Geography lesson notes wiki

We follow the Edexcel syllabus but this is not endorsed by Edexcel
As we have no suitable textbook yet, this will set out to give you the basics of each unit.
Different way of grouping countries: the modern exam syllabus no longer uses LEDC, NIC and MEDC - sorry guys as you have just got to grips with that! Follow the link to see the new definitions!
As we have no suitable textbook yet, this will set out to give you the basics of each unit in a wiki textbook to be found

Each topic is divided up into key questions. To read the section on a key question, you will need to link from the Topic page. If for example, you need to look up the hydrological cycle from the river environment topic, go to river environments and then go down to key questions and click on the one about hydrological cycles (Qu1) and it will take you to a whole section about it.
