GCSE History is one of the most popular options with approximately two thirds of students regularly choosing to continue their studies in the subject. From September 2012 History will be examined in a linear fashion, meaning that students will sit three exams and and complete their coursework at the end of Year 11.

Unit 3 – A Divided Union? USA 1945-70.
