    I need to submit a history essay for Cambridge.
    As we don`t write essays for school, I need to write them at home on my own. The problem is finding a nice topic though...
    I would really appreciate any suggestions! (preferably about the Middle Ages)
    Thanks!

    Excited, but then nervous that I might get no offers at all....:rolleyes:

    Oh, and worried that my school may have not actually sent my UCAS form, seeing as it's still saying "Your applicaton has not been confirmed/ Your reference has not yet been started" despite the fact that I sent it a few days ago? :confused:
