how does gcse history work (AQA)

just a little puzzled. for context, im homeschooled. do they give you a paper with all the questions for each depth study/wider world study on or do you have to book a specific paper? (like when you book maths u specify if it's higher or foundation)

no you have to select which topics you want to cover
https://www.aqa.org.uk/exams-administration/entries/make-entries/gcse-history-entry-codes for all the topics available (my school did this for me but ig you'd have to choose it yourself when you enter).
In the exam you get 2 papers in each of the two tests, eg in paper 1 i got a test on Germany and a test on Cold War as separate booklets, and you had to complete both in 2 hours. In paper 2 I am going to do Medicine and Normans papers, with 2 hours to do both of them (my advice is to not pick these if you have the choice lol, go with elizabethan england and migration instead or smth, your choice)
