I was just wondering because I am making my choices as I type and only have until the end of half term. I was just a bit nervous of picking History. I definitely enjoy it quite a bit and I do like to write essays. However I just wanted to find out whether in GCSE History, you had to remember loads of dates, because that I am not good at????

If you enjoy history and like to write essays then you'll be fine when it comes to history.

I did it for GCSE and focused on making timelines and revision cards to help remember key names and dates.

I am currently doing GCSE history. You do have to remember quite a lot of dates and information and you also need to know the messages and reasoning of sources etc. However, if you are good at writing essays and you enjoy history you will be okay. If you are still not sure about choosing history, speak to your teachers as mine helped me to make the right choice.

I found History to be one of the harder GCSEs I took. However, it was definitely worth it: I really enjoyed it.

You have to remember quite a lot of dates and names and there are 3 exams for History. I enjoy doing History and I'm revising on the content of each unit and making flash cards, to remember the key dates/names.

It depends on how much effort you're willing to put in and your ability, to be honest. I loved it and so it was one of my strongest GCSEs. As you enjoy it, you should be absolutely fine I'd say the key to GCSE History is repetition. Write things out over and over until you remember them and they'll stick in your head. Practice any source analysis and you'll get much better and be fine when it comes to the exams

I'm currently taking GCSE history right now and while it's a little difficult to memorise all the names and dates, the essay part is pretty easy actually. But if you're still unsure, look at the requirements of your chosen career or look at the other choices, there might be one that you might think is better than history.
