Is this course for me?
If you are genuinely interested in History and can read, analyse and summarise texts then this course is for you.
What will I study?
You will follow a course of Enquiry into The Normans in England 1066 to 1100, taking into consideration the reign of Edward the Confessor and what effect his early death had on the nation. You will also do a Period Study into The Crusades and The Crusader States from 1095 until 1192, looking closely at the successes and failures on both the Christian and Muslim sides from the First to the Third Crusade, including the extent and impact of Muslim disunity.
These are the compulsory subjects:
The Normanisation of England and the Holy Crusades.
What are the entry requirements?
For this subject you will need a Grade 'C' at GCSE English and a Grade 'C' in History (if taken).
What can I do next?
If you achieve at least a grade 'D' in the external examination, then you can enrol onto the A2 Course. The AS itself can also be added to your overall UCAS points to gain entry to University (if you already have other qualifications).
What employment does this relate to?
Museums, Art Galleries, other national bodies such as The National Trust or English Heritage.
How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed by two internal tests (one per term) plus a Mock Exam in the Spring Term. There will be two external examinations, one in January and one in June.
