    I HATE modern History and I think it is soooo not fair that we couldn't choose our modules! But I have to do crappy A-Level modern History if I want to do History and University!!

    I'm doing my Edexcel IGCSE History exam this May. For section A I'm doing Germany 1918-1945. Then I'm doing A9 option just like you. For section B I'm doing the same topic as you - WW1. But for section C I'm doing C5: Middle East.

    I am not very good in history. I would like some tips from you. How do I improve myself? Also how do I finish the exam on time? I never finish in proper time.
