I'm a History teacher with experience in the state/independent sector. I've spent several hours attending webinars and training courses and using the AQA website to create lessons for the new specification. I've tried to ensure that every lesson is as simple to understand as possible, with teacher notes at the bottom of each slide if necessary, and with answers provided for any questions/activity.

AQA (9-1) GCSE History - Health and the People - Mock Exam and Mark Scheme

(0)
A mock exam for AQA GCSE History Health and the People. Made from questions given by AQA and in the textbook. There is a double sided sheet for students, and the layout is in the same layout as the exam paper. After the exam, there is space for students to reflect on their performance before it is marked. I've also included a mark scheme. I have given this to my students after Lesson 20. I will then give them feedback which should help them for a final End of Unit Mock Exam at the end of the course.
