A-level History qualifications have been designed to help students understand the significance of historical events, the role of individuals in history and the nature of change over time. Our qualifications will help them to gain a deeper understanding of the past through political, social, economic and cultural perspectives. The engaging topics available to them throughout the course will provide them with the knowledge and skills they require to succeed as AS and A-level historians. The Tudor  Breadth Study requires the study of an extended period and enables students to develop secure understanding of the process of change over time. While the American Depth Study is focused on a significant period of historical change or development. Students will gain deep understanding of change and continuity through the study of the interrelationships of a variety of perspectives as indicated in the content. Finally, the non-exam assessment requires students to identify an issue they wish to study and develop a question from this issue which will be the focus of the Historical Investigation.
