The Cambridge Pre-U History course requires learners to study different areas and substantial periods of history, identifying patterns in, and connections between, apparently contrasting events and developments.
The course encourages learners to use independent study skills, to read widely, write fluently, and to develop the capacity to formulate and justify their own ideas about the past. It includes source-based studies to develop learners' skills in interpreting and evaluating evidence.
We have made some changes to the wording and layout of the front covers of our question papers to reflect the new Cambridge International branding and to make instructions clearer for candidates.
You will see these changes on live question papers from June 2020 and therefore we have made these changes on the specimen materials for this syllabus. The specimen questions and mark schemes remain the same.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
