GCSE History 9-1 AQA Health and the People (Medicine) Full Course Knowledge Test (80 Qs)

20 questions on each time period covered in this topic - Medieval, Renaissance, Industrial, Modern. The questions are colour-coded by difficulty, and all answers are included. 5,000-word document in total. The test itself is 5 pages long - the idea is that revising from this (and potentially also my 16-marker factor sheet, uploaded separately) will fully equip students with a mastery of the content.
