The Modern History historical study is assessed by the school and moderated at Stage 2. Teachers select moderation samples and submit materials online.

Students undertake an individual historical study based on an aspect of the world since c.1750. Students inquire into, explore, and research a historical idea, event, person, or group in depth. They interpret and synthesise evidence to support their argument and draw conclusions.

The focus of the historical study may be chosen by the teacher, or negotiated by a student.

The historical study should be a maximum of 2000 words if written, or the equivalent in oral or multimodal form, where 12 minutes is equivalent to 2000 words.

Student work should be their own. See Supervision and verification of student work.
