IGSCE and beyond
The History syllabus offers students the opportunity to study some of the major international issues in the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as looking in greater depth at the history of a particular region or regions.
Taking IGCSE History is as much about acquiring historical and transferable skills as it is about acquiring knowledge. Students will gain valuable skills including an understanding about the past and an understanding of historical concepts such as cause and consequence. They will form an appreciation of historical evidence and how to use it, and how to present clear and logical arguments. History compliments a number of subjects including English, Geography and Economics. It will also broaden the outlook of students intending to study the Sciences or Law at A level or as a degree. A traditional subject, History is valued by universities and employers around the world.
