Edexcel GCSE History (1HI0) Specification amendments
From summer 2019 onwards, Paper 2 will be split into two physical question-and-answer booklets: the Period study (booklet P), and the British depth study (booklet B). Students will only be provided with questions for the topics they have studied.
On the day of the Paper 2 exam, candidates will also be provided with a separate sheet containing key information on how pupils should complete the two question-and-answer booklets.
There are no changes to the Paper 2 topics or questions themselves, the timing of the examination (1 hour 45 mins) or the application of the mark scheme.
