Why You Should Study History GCSE

History at GCSE level provides a broad understanding of the past. It offers a glimpse into the lives of individuals and cultures ranging from medieval Europe right up to modern-day America, in addition to offering valuable insight into the ways in which society could function in the future.

By studying key periods in history, you will gain an insight into the changes that have taken place over time, and how these changes have shaped our world today. In the process, you will also develop a better understanding of the likely future of our society.

This is a subject that has the potential to act as a gateway to a huge range of careers; it can help you to develop strong analytical skills that are invaluable in many fields, in addition to providing a breadth of knowledge that will be beneficial in whatever path you choose. If you choose to continue to study history at further education, we have A level history tutors who can support you in your studies.

Potential careers may include archaeology, teaching and museum curation, as well as law, politics, and journalism – all of which have a need for strong analytical thinking and a grasp of history.

Topics Covered In GCSE History

Our GCSE History tuition follows the specifications that state that pupils must study content from three eras:

  • Medieval (500-1500)
  • Early Modern (1450-1750)
  • Modern (1700-Present day)

Study must also cover three geographical contexts:

  • A locality (the historic environment)
  • British (Mus cover a minimum of 40% of the assessed content)
  • European and/or wider world settings

Students must study:

  • A thematic study – understanding change and continuity across a period covering all three eras
  • A period study – focused on a time span of at least 50 years, and intended to help students understand a narrative of unfolding issues and developments
  • A study of the historic environment – focused on a specific site and its historical context

How Is History GCSE Assessed?

GCSE History is now a linear qualification, with two exams taken at the end of the two-year course.

The first paper is a thematic study and period study, lasting for two hours and covering content focused on “Understanding the modern world”, with a combination of period and world depth studies.

The second paper, also two hours in length, focuses on “Shaping the nation”, and looks at thematic studies and four British depth studies.

Elgin is a fantastic tutor very helpful and kind from the start. He is very considerate and has great knowledge overall making my son more confident academically. Thank you for all your hard work.
I’ve been with this tuition company for about two years, and I can confidently say it has been an outstanding experience. The teachers are brilliant, providing excellent support in my doughter's learning journey. Booking and rearranging lessons are incredibly easy, adding to the overall convenience. I highly recommend this company for their commitment to quality education and user-friendly service.”Amna

My Learning Room is so much more than just a tutoring company!The one on one service is fantastic and the best experience I've encountered across the many tutoring companies we have tried (and not made much progress with). We were concerned about our son's progress at school and wanted to give him some extra help to ensure he can achieve his potential and open a few doors. We felt his school wasn't offering enough as he's a bright boy and capable of more. After failing to be convinced by a few other companies including a local tutor, we came across My Learning Room. We initially started with online GCSE Maths lessons after a very encouraging chat with Amer who was great to deal with. She listened and it was clear she really cared right from the start. The level of tutoring was impressive and we saw improvements within a short space of time. Knowledge on the curriculum was excellent and they focussed on key areas combined with tailored exam practise.We added online GCSE English and Science lessons and again the quality of online tutoring was clear to see, all tutors were very personable and helped build my son's confidence along with his knowledge of these subjects. A patient approach is what was required along with some key advice and techniques; My Learning Room delivered this exceptionally well. It wasn't long before his progress was noticed at school and he was placed in a higher set.My son achieved 8's & 9's across the board. We were simply overjoyed!I genuinely feel this wouldn't have been possible without Amer and the team. We were given advice on further studies, subjects to take and the grades required going forward. My son's confidence has grown so much over these last 2 years and we no longer worry as much as we used to. It was truly a blessing to come across these guys and the consistent positive feedback from the school, exam results and general progress in him as an individual has been such a bright note over these last couple of years.Thank you so much to everyone at My Learning Room. You will not be forgotten and we will keep in touch.

Great company for anyone who needs that little extra help. My son was predicted a 4 at GCSE Maths, we started the tutoring once a week in December and he received his results 2 weeks ago and got a 6!His tutor was a university student so quite close to him in age and very relatable.Would highly recommend My Learning Room, they are extremely flexible, professional but also personable and according to my son quite fun.Thank you so much, if we need any additional tutoring during his 6th form we will be back.
