Course Description

This A' Level History Course is ideal for anyone wishing to gain a knowledge and understanding of this subject or for anyone who wishes to study at a higher level at University and gain UCAS points. You will also find this course extremely valuable if you are looking for a progression route for further training whilst employed.

What makes us unique when delivering your A’ Level specification?

At Learn Now, we treat our students as individuals not numbers. Not everyone works at the same pace or needs the same level of assistance and your Tutor will ensure that you receive as much help as is required. We won’t just provide you with your course materials and leave you to get on with it; your course will be tailored to your needs. We have a resource bank full of useful aids and ideas to help you make the most of your studies and give you the best possible chance of success.

Please note A’ Levels are changing over the next few years, click here for more information.

This A' Level History course forms part of the new linear qualifications. This means that students will sit exams for their particular qualification at the end of the completed course in the June series.

AS levels will become decoupled from A' Levels; this means that they will both become entirely separate qualifications. You will no longer be able to carry forward your AS qualification to the A' Level qualification and you will sit either AS or A' Level exams.

On this course you will study the following core content:
