Brian DickinsonHost: Brian is a History and Sociology teacher with 26 years experience. He is also an examiner with two exam boards, so he likes to focus on material and techniques that will best help students when it comes to exam time.

Whilst it is important to learn the content of exams and assessment it is also important to learn how to prepare for exams to set students up with the best chance of achieving their best in an assessment situation. 

This class allows students to practice how to answer exam questions on Paper 1 of the History GCSE examination, guided by a real examiner to gain first hand insight. Students will look at the skills needed to do well in this difficult exam focusing on the Crime & Punishment paper.

This lesson stresses the importance of starting revision early and not leaving important exam practice until the last minute. Even if you are not studying Crime and Punishment at this time, the class still teaches students vital exam practice skills which are needed whichever topics that you are studying in History.
