    Had my first lessons today, and already have two essays for homework. One for English lit and one for sociology. I would have cried if I'd gotten an essay for History.
    Other than that an overall great start, I can't believe I just had my first day and some people have finished their first week
    Essays already😳 I've got a lot of work but it's mainly research

    Yeah, a lot of the questions are "thinking questions" where we have to apply our knowledge and understand in any context. Apparently, only learning facts will result in you getting an E at A Level :eek:

    I'm also taking chemistry. Which exam board are you doing?

    We haven't been told what we're doing at A2. I have 3 teachers - 1 for Early Tudors and 2 for the Crusades. I'm not sure what I want to do at the moment but I'm thinking about doing something related to Africa or Asia because I haven't learnt much about them at school.
