The International GCSE History syllabus examines major global issues of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, covering the history of particular regions in more depth. Historical knowledge and understanding together with the skills required for historical research are emphasised.
Cause and effect, continuity and change, similarity and difference and how to use and understand historical evidence as part of their studies are explored.
The subject is suited to pupils already interested in the past. It provides a basis for further study at A Level, and also encourages lifelong interest in the subject.
Teacher assessments are continuous during LIVE TAUGHT lessons, marking of coursework and assignments and summative tests.
Homework will be given at the end of each week, usually as the form of a short essay, research activity or source analysis.
Parents have 24 /7 access to all of their children’s coursework. Additionally the school holds 3 parent consultations per year – one each term.
Parents are responsible for arranging their child’s examinations at their local registered examination centre. Cambridge Home School students study from every part of the globe and so it is not practical for the school to offer a single venue to sit examinations.. Consequently Cambridge Home School is not registered with Cambridge International Examinations but has partnerships with examination centres registered with Cambridge International Examinations, Edexcel, OCR, AQA and will support students in locating a suitable venue for sitting their written and practical examinations.
