16 Plus History is sat by students wishing to enter the sixth form of an independent school. Most often students will sit exams in their desired A Level subjects, so usually between three and five subjects. The 16+ exams generally require a good understanding of the subjects’ GCSE syllabi but as the schools are testing for potential, candidates will be pushed and be given questions where their knowledge is stretched.
The GCE A Level History course is a fascinating insight into the minds and actions of people who lived in very different circumstances from our own. Though British history remains the major part of the specifications, you may choose other topics or countries to study alongside it. The course is intellectually stimulating and teaches us how to write clearly, frame a convincing argument and question evidence.
A tutor working through Osborne Cawkwell can prepare a student for the 16+ entrance exams, as well as provide support once the student has started their new school.
