ABOUT THIS COURSE

This course is designed for all teachers looking to ensure their students achieve their best in the summer 2023 OCR A Level History exams.

The course focuses on methods by which student responses to the differing types of questions they will face in their examinations can be improved. All types of exam questions will be considered in terms of their requirements, common mistakes that students make when answering them and strategies to improve the quality of answers produced. Focus will be upon knowledge and understanding as a means of producing higher-level answers, with consideration additionally given to strategies that can be employed by students of differing levels of capability.

The characteristics of excellent essays that move away from description at Level 2 and towards judgement of the higher levels will be exampled, with opportunity given for teachers to scrutinise exam-type responses using marking descriptors and levels.

This course is up to the minute and will respond to any changes in the examination series.
