    History is one of those you can do without a course.

    Cloudlearn is an online provider.

    The alternative if you do it yourself is you can choose which board and which options most interest you.

    The advantage of the online course is its structured plus you get some support.

    If you do it on your own then you have to buy the textbooks. That could cost you 50% of the course.


    The other two fees are to pay for a private test centre to use their facilities to sit the exam. To pay the exam board to mark it.

    So the cost of your course is:

    Course/ materials cost [£100-350]
    +
    Test centre fee. [ c £250 ]
    +
    Exam board fee. [c £100]

    You are going to have to do your research. If you are inexperienced then maybe a course. If you are organised then possibly teach yourself.

    You can also pay a tutor.

    Hi Doddy,

    I'm afraid I don't know enough to recommend online courses, but if you decide to self-teach, you may wish to also supplement that with a few sessions with a tutor, so make sure you're on the right track.

    We have a large number of history tutors on our site, which you can search and contact for free here:

    Good luck with your studies!
