Gcse History Coursework Percentage
The department provides opportunities to participate in the "Lessons from Auschwitz" project with the Holocaust Educational Trust and hosts a programme of visiting lecturers from experts in the field.Students have also been supported in doing and Extended Project in History to assist with application to Oxbridge and Russel Group universities to do single or joint History Degrees.We suggest that schools should not rely on predictions about where the grade boundaries will be, but they can rely on the statistical alignment described above.For example, in general, a student who would have achieved a grade A or above in a previous qualification is likely to achieve at least a grade 7 in the new qualification.
A Levels provide an excellent basis for progression to higher level qualifications such as Degrees or Higher National Diplomas.
Exam boards have provided sample papers and mark schemes for those new subjects being taken this summer, but it will be the first time that students take these exams 'for real' and the first time that the teams of examiners go through the full standardisation and training process and do the marking 'for real'.
This time last year we urged schools and colleges not to rely on predictions about the likely positions of grade boundaries in new GCSEs in English language, English literature and maths.
Several of our students have gone on to study History at prestigious universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol and King’s London, and other Russell and Sorrel Group Universities.
