The engaging topics available will provide you with the knowledge and skills you require to succeed as AS and A-level historians.

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 that as the awarding body is CIE, the qualification will be International A' Level / AS Level History.

Students use Cambridge International AS & A Levels to gain places at leading universities worldwide including the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Egypt, Jordan, South Africa, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain.
