The Early Tudors A Level History series takes you through the OCR specification step by step, ensuring that you have the necessary knowledge to perform throughout the period of your course and to help prepare you for your A Level. The series is produced by Nick Fellows, a lead examiner for OCR who has written many textbooks on The Tudors, Katie Fellows, who is currently studying for her D.Phil in History at St Peter's College, Oxford, and Oxford historian, Dr Glyn Redworth, who is a specialist in Early Modern British & European history.
In addition to the main series content, Dr Redworth also considers key words or concepts which will give our listeners a neat perspective on each area of study and help them to grasp issues clearly, simply and originally. The course is split between 2 key elements - the Period Study, 1485-1547 and the Enquiry Element, The Mid-Tudor Crises - 1547-1558.
The Period Study will examine the following areas:
The Enquiry Topic will examine the following areas:
In the Enquiry element, the focus will be on the critical use of evidence in investigating and assessing historical questions, problems and issues.
As Glyn says: "What I like about Audiopi is that it is student-facing: it doesn't just want to help them master the syllabus, it wants to edge them that little bit further."
