We are pleased to announce that our new AS/A Level GCE Ancient History qualification is accredited for first teaching in 2017.
Our AS and A Level Ancient History specifications provide a broad, coherent and rewarding study of the history of the ancient world. Familiar, popular topics have been retained whilst new, exciting topic areas have been added to create an appealing study of the ancient world.
Assessment in Welsh will not be available for these qualifications (H007, H407).
Inspiring a love of Classics for lifelong learning – The opportunity to study a range of significant individuals, societies and events which will inspire and motivate learners to engage further with the classical world.
A more personalised course – A range of options, with no prohibited routes and maximum flexibility in creating your course of study.
Accessible – Our specifications do not require any previous study of a classical subject or knowledge of Classical Greek or Latin language.
Straightforward assessment – Bespoke question papers for each topic, simple rubrics and clear mark schemes.
Support and guidance – Our Classics team have a love of the subject and extensive experience that we are eager to share. We’ll provide a range of high quality, creative resources which will grow throughout the lifetime of the specification.
