16-18

Guidance

Studying history at A-Level, IB or Pre-U is challenging, yet rewarding as you get to unwrap more complex layers of history, delve deeper into historical evidence and debate issues that inform your understanding of the present. Whatever you are planning to do next, congratulations on making an excellent choice in choosing to continue your study of history beyond the age of 16. Not only does history work in perfect harmony with most other subjects, but the transferable skills that a study of history brings will help to prepare you for the world beyond your formal education, whether that is a history degree, a degree in a different subject, an apprentiship or a job. Your 6th form study of history will enable you to evaluate, make complex judgments, understand how historical interpretations are constructed and communicate an argument effectively.
