Guide to A Level History
What is the difference between History GCSE and A-Level? Many students who have enjoyed GCSE History choose to continue studying the subject at A-Level, making it one of the more highly ranking courses in lists of the most popular A-Levels. One of the key differences between GCSE and A-Level History is the breadth and depth of content.
History Super Curricular Activities
How do Super-curricular Activities help applicants to top Universities? Anybody can say that they have a passion for history and many people do. Most of us are interested in some aspect of the past, whether we are keen students of local history or the traditions associated with our favourite sport, or fascinated by a particular figure whom we have encountered in a book or historical drama on TV.

Keystone Tutors can provide History tuition tailored to specific exam for 13+ Common Entrance, GCSE History, IGCSE History, IB History, A Level History, the Oxford HAT and entry to Cambridge University. The tutors we work with help to improve exam performance by making use of past History papers, reinforcing core learning, developing revision techniques, and helping students to push the boundaries of their knowledge of History to differentiate themselves from fellow students.
GCSE History students will need a solid grounding in a range of different historical eras and regions of the world. The History tutors we work with will help your child to use contemporary sources effectively, develop their understanding of historical concepts, and maximise their ability to answer History questions. We aim to build up your child’s confidence, speed, and accuracy under pressure in History, equipping them to excel at GCSE level.
Our History tutors can help your child across all areas of the IGCSE History curriculum, including in preparation for coursework. The IGCSE provides an excellent foundation for further study in History, and the tutors we represent will help your child take full advantage of this, reinforcing the key concepts and preparing them to perform well under examination conditions.
IB History is a challenging qualification, covering a range of compulsory and optional components across World History. Our History tutors will help your child to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, develop their critical thinking skills and their Historical imagination, solve problems, and communicate their knowledge successfully in an exam context.
A Level History is a well-respected subject suitable for many future career paths, and students have to master a wide range of complex topics to succeed. Our History tutors are able to focus in on those areas where your child needs additional support, help them demonstrate their knowledge effectively under time pressure, and ultimately prepare them to perform strongly in these key exams.
The HAT is designed to help whittle down the number of students moving on to interview stage when applying to Oxford University, and as such is a rigorous and competitive examination. Our History tutors can help your child maximise their performance in this assessment, building on their knowledge and helping them to demonstrate the depth of their understanding successfully, as they compete for places to read History at Oxford University.
