Studying your A Level

History at A Level is an opportunity to build on your existing knowledge of History.

You will learn how to critically analyse sources and historic accounts and put forward structured arguments.

During your course you will study:

  • The Industrialisation of Britain between 1783 and 1885.
  • 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. Your exams will be at an exam centre near to you. We will aim to find you a place within 50 miles of your postcode, subject to centre capacity and exam availability. 

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.

Getting Started

learndirect is a national leader in distance learning courses. That means you don’t have wait for the post, as all of your course materials can be found in a convenient online portal.

As soon as you enrol with us you can start studying your History A Level. There’s no need to wait for ‘term’ to start. There are no term dates or class times, just your desire to learn and achieve.

This gives you the flexibility to study when it works for you. You can plan your studies around your existing commitments rather than the other way around. The only specific deadline to work towards is your exam – exam sittings are held once per year in May or June.

But distance learning doesn’t mean you’re doing it by yourself. From the moment you start your course, you will have a tutor assigned to help you. They will provide advice and guidance during your studies. They will also be marking your assignments and giving you comprehensive feedback.

This enables you to make continual, positive progress throughout.

Pursuing your career

An A Level in History can allow you to go on to study History, Social Sciences or Humanities at university. However, your desired university will have entry requirements so be sure to check the grade required in this and associated subjects.
