I’d say a bit of both, have you had a look at the GCSE specification for this?

I've taken it and honestly there is a lot of content, but for my course (Women in the Ancient World) what matters more is the basic facts - and that's where memorisation matters. In the short questions, like one or two markers, its all about very concise information but I've never gotten it on actual dates before, instead its more about the names of the people who where they're from. For the Homeric World, I learn about Mycenae and honestly the only dates that matter are the different periods of Mycenae, and that's just three sets of years. More importantly though, in the test in essays its about applying the knowledge, and exploring the concepts, instead of just spitting them out on paper as facts.
