Year 12 UNIT 2 (British History) Topic D2: Britain and the Nationalist Challenge in India 1900-47 MOCK REVISION LIST 2012
The main focus of this option is on the changing relationship between Britain and India in this period and on the reasons for this, with particular reference to Indian nationalism. Students will be expected to understand the importance of the growth and impact of Congress and the Muslim League as they challenged Britain’s traditional role in India, and they should understand the reasons why independence led to Partition. A major requirement of this unit is working with selected sources to demonstrate skills which enable students to make reasoned and supported judgements and to address a historical view or claim.
