You and me got a whole lot of history

After two years of study - and plenty of late-night revision - today it was finally time to do battle with A-level History Paper 1.

Civil rights, the Tudors and Russia got plenty of post-exam chat, but was it a case of heads rolling or students celebrating? 

Move down the page for some of the internet's top reactions - and remember there's chat on all of the papers on The Student Room. Links below!

Lots of people felt the pain of a Plains Wars question

However it went, Paper 1 is a wrap
