The study of history is about more than simply memorising dates and the deeds of famous figures. History is a chronicle of human behaviour: a real-life drama full of villains and heroes, the mighty and the meek.
It examines the circumstances that moved its players to transform people and places, and it holds the answers to how and why our lives are fashioned the way they are today.
In GCSE History, students complete three units of study:
- Two Studies in Depth;
- an Outline Study; and
- an Investigative Study (controlledassessment).
