NOTE: CCEA will not be accepting entries from English centres for GCSE courses that begin in or after September 2012


Students are assessed against three assessment objectives. They must:

  • recall, select, organise and communicate knowledge and understanding of history (AO1);
  • demonstrate their understanding of the past through explanation and analysis of:
    • key concepts: causation, consequence, continuity, change and significance within a historical context; and
    • key features and characteristics of the periods studied and the relationships between them (AO2); and
  • understand, analyse and evaluate:
    • source material as part of a historical enquiry; and
    • how aspects of the past have been interpreted and represented in different ways as part of a historical enquiry (AO3).
