The HTA has released a promotion clip to be shown to Form 2 students who are at the stage of deciding which subjects to take at Form 3. The clip is divided into three sections. In the first part students are shown that studying History does not entail studying of names and dates by heart, as many students believe, but it is the study of a living subject. In the second part the clip highlights parts of the syllabus of the History SEC and the resources used to study history at SEC level. The third part defies the mentality that taking history as an option does not present career opportunities in the future, by offering a vast list of job opportunities that are made possible by studying history.
It is recommended that this promotion clip is not shown to students only, but also to the students' parents. This is because it is often the parents who are hesitant from allowing their children to choose History as an option.
