History AS at Bushey Meads School
To achieve the AS award you need to complete two units.
Unit 1: Germany 1933-63: From Democracy to Dictatorship and back again.
Why did the German people vote for a man who openly stated he would destroy democracy?
Could a man who woke up around lunchtime, spent the afternoon reading the papers and his
evenings watching films really be an all powerful dictator who caused the Second World War
and killed 6 million people? Why was Germany split in two after the war? Which side would
you have preferred to live in?
Unit 2 : Britain: Foreign and Imperial Policies 1945-90
How has Britain dealt with the decline of its Great Power status? Why are we no longer a world
Superpower? Are the French correct when they say the British always believe the Channel is
wider than the Atlantic? Maggie Thatcher-Hero or Villain?
You will need at least a C grade if you have completed History GCSE, however a B or above is highly recommended. If you have not studied History GCSE then you will need to have at least 5 A-B’s.
