A and As Level History 9389

Cambridge International AS and A Level History is a flexible and wide-ranging syllabus covering modern history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The syllabus builds upon skills gained at Cambridge IGCSE or Cambridge O Level and develops lifelong skills including understanding issues and themes within a historical period.

The emphasis is again on both historical knowledge and on the skills required for historical research. Learners develop an understanding of cause and effect, continuity and change, similarity and difference, and use historical evidence as part of their studies. At AS learners can select from topics on European, American or International history.

At A Level learners can select from topics on European, American, African, Southeast Asian and International history. Teachers choose which periods to focus on, allowing them to build a course that reflects their learners’ interests and staff specialisms, or which is relevant to the local or regional context. From the 2015 examination series, this syllabus will replace Cambridge International AS and A Level History (syllabus code 9697).
