SIBFORD SIXTH FORM


History


ENTRY REQUIREMENT There is no specific requirement. However, it is recommended that students wishing to study A Level History have Grade 6 in GCSE English and a Grade 6 in History.


History at A Level requires skills of analysis, a willingness to take intellectual risks and a love of the subject. The learning environment is dynamic: lessons mostly take the form of a seminar with students being asked questions or working independently or together to address key questions. Students are expected to read widely both within and outside the core topics in order to build and broaden their own experience of history: ‘ownership’ of the subject content and the ideas and themes which drive it are essential. Please note, this course is a two year course.


Component 1: Breadth Study (1C: The Tudors, 1485 - 1603) • 2 hour 30 minute exam • 80 marks • 40% of A Level. The study of significant historical developments over a period of around 100 years and associated interpretations of historians. Students are required to evaluate the accuracy of three different interpretations using their own knowledge. Wider knowledge of the views of Tudor historians or the reasons for these is not required. In addition, students answer two essay questions.


Component 2: Depth Study (2O: Revolution and Dictatorship: Russia and the Soviet Union, 1917 - 1953) • 2 hour 30 minute exam • 80 marks • 40% of A Level. The study in depth of a period of major historical change or development and associated primary evidence. Students are required to know something about the individuals who generated these sources as well as the wider historical circumstances in which they were produced. In addition, students answer two essay questions.


Component 3: The Decline of Spain, 1550 - 1665) • 20% of A Level.


Students submit an essay of approximately 3,000 words which addresses how far Spain declined. The topic is addressed thematically (i.e. in political, military, imperial, economic and social terms) as well as historiographically (i.e. evaluating the different ways in which historians have addressed the issue of decline). This is a fascinating area of study which has the additional advantage that it is accessible because the reasons for decline and the scope of historical discussion concerning these are clearly delineated.
