    I'm having to catch up cuz, in year 10 I struggled quiet a bit one of my biggest worries being history, I got some really encouraging advice on m last post telling me to keep going which I will try and do but the problem is I'm not sure how to fit things in again, I borrowed a book from school it's just titled Britain 1815-1851 by Dave Martin which I'm trying to get through but it's taking a while. Is this the best approach in order to teach myself there are also revision guides where it's shortened but I couldn't understand them before I read the book which makes me think if I just go by the revision guides I won't have enough information to get me a grade, how should I revise? Has anyone done history or been in this situation I'd appreciate your advice?
    Plus I want to do science based subjects for a level which I need to get into higher for in order to take them (I'm in middle set) should I just scrap history & focus on those?

    Just wondering, what exam board are you doing for history? If AQA, what topics are you doing? (or unit forgot what's it called )
