IGCSE History Course
History is the study of past events. To understand the present thoroughly, we need to look at past events and see how they are influencing the current state of the world. It would be impossible to understand the present social, economic and political climate without referring to the events of the 20th century. Similarly, it would be difficult to understand the events of the 1900s without looking at the 1800s. This IGCSE History Distance Learning Course will teach you all you need to know to pass the exam.

The course is divided into four Units as follows:
Unit 1: 19th century core content: What caused the First World War?
Unit 2: Depth Study: Russia 1905-1941
Unit 3: 20th century core content: International Relations since 1919
Unit 4: Depth Study: Israelis and Palestinians 1945-1994
The notes and assignments for all units have been clearly set out for you. All the factual information required for the examination is in the notes.
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.
