I'd hate to do the study the same thing as I did at GCSE through to A-Level. Where's the variation?
a bit mroe detailed and more specific to places

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.

I don't like mordern history, it all seems a little bit boyish.

I think 'Women through time' would be an interesting unit of the GCSE/A-Level course.

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

Well men have dominated history until recently.
