Course Description

IGCSE History History is the study of past events. To understand the present thoroughly, we need to look at past events and see how they are influencing the current state of the world. It would be impossible to understand the present social, economic and political climate without referring to the events of the 20th century. Similarly, it would be difficult to understand the events of the 1900s without looking at the 1800s. All this means that in order to understand our present, there is a compelling case for studying History.

We have deliberately designed the course to make it as interactive as possible with lots of self-assessment exercises for you to carry out. But we don’t leave it there for we give you comprehensive answers so that you can gauge how much you have learned.  As well as that, we set you practice exam-type questions which your tutor will mark and give you valuable feedback on what will be in the examinations.

The four modules you will study are split over three examination papers: The IGCSE examination Paper One is for 2 hours. It is a written paper. In Section A candidates can answer two questions on either the 19th or 20th century core content topics (Units 1 and 3). In Section B candidates can answer one question one depth study (either unit 2 or 4). This paper is worth 40% of the total marks available. The IGCSE examination Paper Two is for 2 hours. It is a written paper. Candidates can answer a series of questions on either the 19th or 20th century core content topics (Units 1 and 3). This paper is worth 33% of the total marks available. The IGCSE examination Paper Four is for 1 hour. It is a written paper. Candidates can answer one question on one depth study (either unit 2 or 4) and the questions will be based on historical sources. This paper is worth 27% of the total marks available. The four modules you will study are split over three examination papers.
