History at YARM SCHOOL

Course description

History is a popular, interesting and challenging A Level choice, which may lead to University admission to read for a History or related degree. It is also a facilitating subject for many other degree courses, including Law and Medicine. The intellectual training provided by the study of History allows entry into a wide range of careers. Those careers which allow the continued use of expertise and information obtained in a History course include all levels of teaching, archive administration, art gallery and museum curatorship and, for those qualified in archaeology, senior positions in excavation units and in local government planning offices. In addition, those with History A Level (or degree level) are highly regarded and it is sometimes almost essential as a foundation subject for many other careers, including law, journalism, librarianship, management, business and administration, banking, the civil service, valuation surveying and the Armed Forces.

Entry requirements

It is generally expected that students who wish to study History at A-level will have a minimum of a B grade at GCSE History. It is strongly advisable that students have taken History at GCSE but this is not essential and in exceptional circumstances it may be possible to take History at A-level without having studied it at GCSE. In such cases it is expected that students will have achieved at least a B grade in GCSE English.
