LEARN IMPORTANT STRATEGIES TO ANSWER DIFFICULT EXAM QUESTIONS

A Level History Assessment Objectives:

EXAM COMPONENTS/MARKING SCHEME – LEARNING OUTCOMES

According to the MOE, the topics of your exam will include:

O Level History Syllabus:

  • “Paper 1: European Dominance and Challenges (1870s–1945)
    Section A: Source-Based Case Study
    Section B: Structured-Essay Questions
    Unit 1 – European Dominance and Expansion in the late 19th century
    How were systems and societies transformed by colonialism?
    Unit 2 –The World in Crisis
    What forces and developments changed Europe and the Asia-Pacific in the first half of the 20th century?
  • Paper 2: The Bi-Polar World Order (1945–1991)
    Section A: Source-Based Case Study
    Section B: Structured-Essay Questions
    Unit 3 – Bi-Polarity and the Cold War
    How did the Cold War impact the world order in the post-1945 years?
    Unit 4 – Decolonisation and Emergence of Nation-States
    Was the attainment of independence in colonies shaped by the decline of Europe and Cold War politics?
    The compulsory case study of Malaya and either the case study of Vietnam or Indonesia will be studied in
    the context of decolonisation and emergence of nation-states in the post-war years.”
  • “AO1: Demonstrate historical knowledge and understanding

    • Select and deploy historical knowledge appropriately, and communicate historical knowledge and understanding in a clear and effective manner.

    AO2: Critically Analyse and Evaluate Historical Issues

    • Construct historical explanations that demonstrate an understanding of historical concepts and issues within a historical period.
    • Where appropriate, construct historical explanations that assess different approaches to, and interpretations of, historical issues.
    • Make judgements based on reasoned consideration of historical evidence and interpretations.

    AO3: Interpret & Evaluate Sources

    • Interpret, evaluate and use source materials in context as historical evidence.
    • Make judgements and reach conclusions based on reasoned consideration of historical sources.

For O Level History:

“Knowledge and Understanding

At the end of the course, students should be able to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of:

  • history as a construct – history is constructed from evidence and there are different interpretations of historical events
  • the key characteristics of the periods studied – this includes the social, economic, cultural and political contexts of the societies studied and the experiences of the peoples who lived in these societies at that point in time
  • the interconnections between individuals, societies, events and developments studied and those in the present day
  • key individuals, groups, forces, events and ideas that shaped the development of the political, social and cultural contexts of our world today; and • the process of change by showing change and/or development within and across the periods of study.”

For A LEVEL HISTORY:

  • “Candidates are expected to have a sound knowledge of the prescribed theme and an acquaintance with the kinds of sources available. The question will be based on sources that might be used by historians in building up an account of a topic. Both primary and secondary sources could be used for the source-based case study. Candidates will be expected to have an understanding of the ways in which these sources may be evaluated.

    A maximum of six sources will be set for the source-based case study. Differing accounts of the same situations or accounts from the same source may be set. These accounts may show different views as time progresses or in communicating with different recipients. A variety of sources may be used, for example, documentary, statistical, visual and maps. The sources set will usually total no more than 900 words (or their equivalent where non-textual sources are used). The first sub-question requires candidates to compare two sources. The second sub-question presents candidates with an assertion which they need to test against given the set of sources and their background knowledge of issues.

    The source-based sub-questions will be assessed using holistic band descriptors. The assessment involves qualitative rather than quantitative evaluation. Judgements on the appropriate band of each response assessed will be based on the principle of ‘best fit’ determined by the descriptions within each band which has several assessment criteria.”

HIRE THE BEST HISTORY TUITION TEACHERS

  • You do not need to be all alone, trying to understand and learn History.
  • History is certainly not an easy subject, but you yourself know many friends who have scored A for History during the recent school tests or exams.
  • Complex concepts can be mastered when you have an experienced and qualified History private tutor to teach you all the effective methods to score well in the exams.
  • All universities are selective, and the best schools have the pick of the junior college/polytechnic crop – they can afford to be, because everyone wants a place there. Entry into these institutions is very competitive, no matter what changes there to the curriculum, exam format or aptitude tests.
    History is not as intimidating as it seems, if you and your child know where to start and which components to prioritise.
  • Think that History is dry and uninteresting? Let our History tuition teachers help change that!
