The AS and A-level History specification can be easily co-taught.
  • The content of each AS option is identical to the content of the first part of the corresponding A-level option.
  • The assessment objectives are the same.
  • The questions on the AS examination are deconstructed versions of the questions on the A-level examination.
  • The same historical skills apply to both.
  • These skills are summative if the AS is taken as a stand-alone qualification but formative if the student continues on to the full A-level.
  • The A-level has an additional third component (non-examined assessment).
