Hey, I was just wondering if any current history students could possibly give me some advice on the different courses?
I was wondering what exactly quantification paper involves. Iv'e read what the history website says but I dont quite understand how it fits with history. I was just wondering if anyone could give me an example of what sorts of things it involves. How much maths is it, and I guess what I'm wondering the most do you actually learn about any period of history when doing it or is it simply teaching you a different way to evaluate history?
Also, I'm having a hard time picking which British and general papers to do! I understand that I have to take 1 module from each time period, but the only ones which cover the middle period are times which I have done for A-level. I know which modules I want to study next year, and so I have worked out that I need the combination of either british (300-1087) and general (1400-1650) or british(1500-1700) and general (370-900). Basically what I would like to know is, 1. Has anybody had experience of studying these modules, if so what did you think! and 2. How flexible are the teachers if you have studied something before will they let you look at something else in more detail instead?
It's a bit of a pain because they advice you not to study what you have at A level but to fill their requiments I'm going to have too!
Sorry for the long question I'm just looking for some extra advice or information because at the moment I'm just going round in circles, everything sounds so interesting!
