Beat the teacher quiz: could you pass Year 7 history?

So you consider yourself a history whiz... but could you pass a Year 7 history exam? Try your hand at these questions, set by Chris Smith from Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form.

Mr Smith teaches years 7 to 13 at the local authority mixed comprehensive in Norwich, Norfolk. The school is Norfolk's largest, with more than 1,800 students, and is currently the only school in Norfolk to be rated as outstanding by Ofsted under new inspection criteria.

As well as history, Mr Smith teaches A-level government and politics. He is interested in political history, the development of social movements over time, and how states and their citizens interact.
