Syllabus

The course contains a number of activities and several Tutor Marked Assignments (TMAs). We also include a number of Activities for self assessment designed to assist in your studies. TMAs should be returned to your tutor for marking and comment, although remember they do not count towards your final mark.

 

We have deliberately designed the course to make it as interactive as possible with lots of self-assessment exercises for you to carry out. But we don’t leave it there, for we give you comprehensive answers so that you can gauge how much you have learned.  As well as that, we set you practice exam-type questions which your tutor will mark and give you valuable feedback on.

 

 

The four modules you will study are split over three examination papers:

The IGCSE examination Paper One is for 2 hours. It is a written paper. In Section A candidates can answer two questions on either the 19th or 20th century core content topics (Units 1 and 3).
