    I'd hate to do the study the same thing as I did at GCSE through to A-Level. Where's the variation?

    history varies dependign on exam board and options your college chooses

    i study tsarist russia/russian revolutions; british history 1929-1997; and german history (focus on economic modernisation) 1890-1990.

    all of it, especially the german stuff, is highly relevant to economics (particularly if you have to do a module on economic history), and I and most people who study it find it very enjoyable.
    my schools does a module in the Tudors.

    True. But I'd rather have a broad knowledge of History than know everything about a few certain historic periods. Some students study the same thing from Year 9-A2.

    A single module has more work than the entire GCSE I think, it's a huge step up. Luckily, the first few are quite pants.
    Yay...

    I know you have modular exams, but is there a synoptic one at the end which you have to know everything for?

    And after getting your Further Maths A-Level, what are you doing now.. studying at uni? Are you really into maths?

    Well depends if you want to do different time epriods. My school gives 3 different board choices and each covering different periods dont know about your school though

    We did the Tudors at primary school. I prefer modern history. The really old stuff depresses me, it's like it was a totally different world then to how it is today.

    Exactly. All we study about is these supposedly 'great' men.
