Learners study one Study in Depth from four options in total. This unit focuses study on a substantial and coherent short time scale in the history of Wales within Britain. This unit will provide learners with the opportunity to understand the complexity of a society in the history of Wales within Britain more effectively. Learners should understand how the experience of people within Wales can be distinctive but also that it can reflect the wider relationship with Britain. This unit encourages learners to use a wide range of historical sources. Learners will also study different historical interpretations of specific events and issues.

Unit 2: Studies in Depth

History with a European / world focus

Written examination: 1 hour  25% of qualification  50 marks (plus 3 marks for spelling, punctuation and grammar and the use of specialist language)

This unit focuses study on a substantial and coherent short time scale in the history of a society in Europe or the wider world.  This unit will provide learners with the opportunity to understand the complexity of a society in the history of Europe or the wider world more effectively. This unit also allows learners the opportunity to study history within a wider geographical context. This unit encourages learners to use a wide range of historical sources.

Unit 3: Thematic studies from a broad historical perspective

Written examination: 1 hour 15 minutes 30% of qualification 60 marks (plus 4 marks for spelling, punctuation and grammar and the use of specialist language)

Learners study one Thematic Study from four options in total. The thematic studies provide learners with the opportunity to study history in breadth and consequently understand the changing nature of developments and issues associated with particular periods within the context of British history. In this unit, the impact of change on Wales should be highlighted within the broader historical context. The thematic studies will also allow learners to understand change and continuity and similarity and difference across long sweeps of history, as well as the most significant characteristics of different ages. The thematic studies will focus study on different historical eras and different geographical contexts if appropriate. This unit encourages learners to develop an understanding of historical concepts in particular, including continuity, change, cause, consequence, significance and similarity and difference. Examination questions in this unit will require candidates to make reference to the impact of changes on Wales or a Welsh perspective and therefore examples of these must be studied.

What our members say

As an experienced teacher, I can honestly say the resources on this website are some of the very best I have ever seen. They are professionally produced and very relevant to the subject areas especially in regards to Eduqas resources. This site is the only one I have seen that offers Eduqas resources. All exam material is provided and is totally relevant to the syllabus. Resources are constantly updated and it is obvious that the staff at School History stay up to date with curriculum and exam changes.

Not only that,  the resources are easily downloadable and easy to modify to suit if necessary. Although they are so well made this is rarely needed. Communication is excellent with prompt replies to any queries. A site worth its weight in gold. Thank you School History!

Mrs E Thornton
Eduqas History Teacher, Alderman Peel High School

School History resources have been essential for my tailoring of IGCSE teaching.

Their resources offer teachers a variety of methods to interest students, allow access to relevant information and to teach analytical skills.

With our move to online learning, I found that many more remote-friendly resources (PowerPoint, worksheets and more) were needed on a daily basis.

Over the last three years, I have taught both IGCSE and A level history, and School History has been my go-to site for material.

It has a wealth of information, excellently organised by examination syndicate, to help students understand and teachers prepare.

From PPT presentations to handouts and assessments, the material is invaluable to any history teacher.
