MPW offers a modular revision course for Modern Twentieth Century syllabuses. These half-day modules are relevant for those studying IGCSE CIE and Pearson syllabus. If you require a history module not listed below, please contact a course director. In order to combine History with another subject in the same week, please note the times and days of each module, which will be the same each week. We are unable to help with coursework pieces as to do so would be to interfere with work that must be vouched for as the student’s own by their regular teacher.
