Studying your A Level

  • Democracy and Nazism in Germany between the first and second World Wars (1918-1945).
  • You will also carry out a historical investigation about a 100 year period of your choice.

As you explore each of these units, you will develop a keen eye for detail, identifying critical moments in the course of history.

You will be challenged to test the robustness of your sources through problem-solving. As well as debate your viewpoint in a structured and balanced way.

This A Level course bundle includes all the course material you need and the exams to gain your qualification. The first exam focuses on the study of significant historical developments for around 100 years and associated interpretations.

Exam two challenges you to study a period of major historical change or development and associated primary evidence.;

Finally, you will also have to submit a historical investigation examining 100 years.

Upon completion of the course you will have the demonstratable knowledge required to take your study of history to degree level and beyond.

Frequently Asked Questions

You don’t need any GCSEs to do our online A-Level History course as there are no entry requirements, however, they would be useful. Please note that if you wish to progress to university, you will need GCSEs or a Level 2 equivalent qualification. We also provide these qualifications so speak to our team about how we can help you meet your university entry requirements when you enrol on this course.
A-Level History is widely regarded as a strong qualification for university admission in the UK. Universities appreciate the skills cultivated through the course, such as critical thinking, analytical reasoning, and effective written communication. A-Level History demonstrates a student's ability to engage with complex ideas, analyse evidence, and construct coherent arguments—essential skills in various academic disciplines. Moreover, for those considering a degree in history or related fields, A-Level History provides a solid foundation and demonstrates a genuine interest in the subject. Additionally, universities often value the broader skills developed, making A-Level History a versatile qualification suitable for diverse courses and demonstrating a student's capacity for in-depth research and understanding of historical contexts.
A-Level History unlocks a treasure trove of possibilities! It's a springboard for degrees in history, law, journalism, and even international relations, prepping you for careers like teacher, researcher, museum curator, or journalist. But its hidden gem is the skillset: critical thinking, analysis, and communication. These transferable skills make you a sought-after talent in fields like finance, government, and even the creative industries.
You can make A-Level History revision both effective and enjoyable by injecting creativity into your study routine. Begin by crafting a visually appealing revision schedule with colourful themes, transforming it into a personalised roadmap for success. You could try turning key points into catchy rhymes or mnemonics to make them more memorable. Create engaging flashcards that incorporate humour so they are more likely to stick in your mind. If you’re the theatrical type, you could try doing some historical re-enactments, whether through online simulations or acting out key events with friends, to bring the past to life. Another great tip is to embrace the power of technology by exploring interactive history apps and games that turn learning into an enjoyable activity. By infusing fun and creativity into your revision techniques, you can transform A-Level History preparation into an enjoyable journey of discovery.
