    For AS, did, The Boom and Bust Period of America, Civil Rights in America and The New Deal (coursework)

    I don't think that anyone doing Edexcel has everything the same - I assume they have more modules to choose from. Or maybe it's becuase I go to a silly all boys Grammar school that gives us boring, old history...

    Okay, I can feasibly answer questions on medieval europe 1000-1400, eighteenth and nineteenth century british, French Rev 1789 -1815, Imperial Germany. Though reasonably on any british really especially Labour history and trade union movements etc.
    Yay another uni historian - I felt I had strayed into the wrong place entirely!

    Uni: Britain 1500-1700 (bit hazy after the early Stuarts), Europe 1000-1400, French Ancien Régime (all rather specific again though as paper focused on Tocqueville's interpretations).
