Pre-U History 


The Pre-U History exams are set by the Cambridge International Board, CIE. More schools are choosing for their students to sit the Pre-U exams either instead of, or mixed with, A Levels.

The Pre-U History specification requires learners to study different areas and substantial periods of history. In addition students will identify patterns in, and connections between, apparently contrasting events and developments. Furthermore 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 also includes source-based studies to develop learners’ skills in interpreting and evaluating evidence.

A Pre-U History tutor through Osborne Cawkwell will help a student to think more reflectively and critically in order to become effective, independent and analytical writers. A tutor will also assist in developing a student’s ability to research and ask the most significant questions about the past, encouraging them to understand the true nature of historical study.
