IGCSE History gives you insight into the present social economic and political climate by understanding the events that led up to it, particularly those of the 20th century. The combination of knowledge and skills in Cambridge IGCSE (9–1) History gives learners a solid foundation for further study.

You will explore what caused the European revolutions of 1848 which changed the shape of the continent, The First World War, the conflict between Israel and Palestine and Russian history. You will also develop critical reasoning skills and the ability to question primary sources.

Upon successful completion of the exam and practical assessments (as administered by CIE ), you will have achieved an internationally recognised Cambridge CIE IGCSE History (0977) qualification.

Tutor support

Our IGCSE courses come with tutor feedback and support by email for 12 months. They will mark your TMAs and provide valuable guidance through any trickier parts of the course whenever you need it. You will also receive a study guide to help you with all aspects of studying, essay writing and general student skills.

  • Understand how past events influence the current state of the world.
  • Develop critical reasoning skills and the ability to interrogate primary sources.
  • Gain an appreciation of History and its wider context.
  • Prepare for study at a higher level.

The CIE IGCSE History qualification is gained once the three exam papers are successfully completed. These exams are administered by CIE and assessment centre details will be included with your course, as well as practice papers so that you are more than prepared for your assessments.

In addition, there will be a number of tutor marked assessments (TMAs) to ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the course materials, with the tutor sending comments to guide you through any areas of potential difficulty, as well as a range of self-assessments that are indicators that you understand the materials as you work through them. These are for your own information, and do not need to be shown to your course tutor.

The course is primarily an online course using a Learning Management System (LMS).

The online course has many features that cannot be printed such as embedded videos, forums and interactive tests.

The course includes Tutor Marked Assessments which you access and submit through the online system.
