GCSE World History at Queen Elizabeth School
Have you ever wondered why World War II broke out just 21 years after the end of World War I? Do you know why Adolf Hitler became so influential in Germany in the 1930s? Are you interested in our world today and how the past has played a part in shaping that world?
This course can help you explain the answers to these questions and others like it. It is a Modern history course with emphasis on the Twentieth Century. If you enjoy more political, recent History, this is the one for you.
There are three parts to the course with two exams at the end of Year 11 and one piece of assessment done under exam conditions in Year 10
Aspects of International relations 1919-2005
1.The Inter-War Years 1919-2005
2 A Study in Depth: Germany 1919-1945
3 British Depth Study: British Society 1890-1918
4 A Study in Depth: Germany 1919-1945
This course will suit those people interested in modern political history
An interest in World Affairs and political events
Apart from a range of History courses at A level and university, History GCSE is well regarded by employers for the skills it provides. The ability to look at both sides of an argument, to write from a sustained, reasoned point of view and the skills in individual research that you develop. Don’t imagine that History is not for you if you are planning a career in Science. Universities are keen on scientists with all the skills mentioned above.
