A Level in History at Great Marlow School

Course description

With a qualification in History you could go on to Higher Education to study any one of the many Arts and Social Science courses available. With or without a degree, you can use a History qualification to work in a great variety of jobs in business and administration, the police service, the law, journalism and the media (as well as the more obvious careers like teaching or working in museums and libraries).

Subjects which go well with History are Politics, English, a Foreign Language or Geography.

This qualification is designed to foster the development of critical and reflective thinking with an understanding of historical topics and issues; and to encourage an awareness of the importance of historical awareness in explaining contemporary issues. OCR’s A Level History has been designed to emphasise knowledge and argument, and to encompass a large range of traditional and new optional units. Its aim is to create independent learners, critical thinkers and decision makers – all personal assets that can make them stand out as they progress to higher education and/or the workplace.

Entry requirements

Students should have achieved at least a B grade or above in GCSE History.
