History

Entry Requirements

An average Attainment 8 score of 5.5 as well as a Grade 6 in English Language. In addition, GCSE Grade 6 in History is required.

What is History?

We aim to make History an enjoyable and stimulating subject for all our students.

We will study fascinating characters and events from the past in order to allow you to immerse yourself in a world that is both completely different and yet fundamentally similar to our world today. We hope to allow you the opportunity to explore how and why our society and other societies have grown and developed, and to understand the basis on which historical knowledge is built. Key skills such as the construction of coherent arguments and the ability to understand different points of view will be developed. We will look at causation, the critical evaluation of evidence and historical interpretation.

The course is structured in ‘routes’, with students studying the topics specified in a particular route.

You will study Route E: Communist states in the twentieth century

Paper 1: Breadth study with Interpretations: (2hrs 15min) You answer 3 questions; one from Section A (essay question), one from Section B (essay question) and one from Section C (source interpretation question).

Paper 2: Depth Study: (1hr 30min). You answer 2 questions; one from Section A (source Interpretation question) and one from Section B (essay question).

Unit 4: Historical Enquiry coursework: (3000-4000 words) The focus of the coursework is on your understanding the nature and purpose of the work of the historian.

You will also be required to analyse, explain and evaluate the interpretations of 3 historians.

How will you be assessed?
