    I'm going into A2 into September, kind of dreading it. How did you manage to juggle the workload of English and History?

    I also study history and English, your journalism comment interests me (I'd like to be an English teacher) can you explain this further?

    I found that at school I loved history, but at college I realised that was down to the teacher not the subject, so I intend to drop it for a2. The workload was also at times unmanageable and I unashamedly prioritised English because that's what I want to do, where as others struggled on. (As a result I got 79/80 on my AS English coursework)

    Best of luck with your a2 year, if you ever want any English help - I'm very passionate on language - message me.

    Ah awesome. Will you be studying 4 subjects or are you dropping one?

    I found it ok, all my subjects were essay based so was used to doing alot of essays. I would say i found English the hardest, just because there was so much reading and texts/quotes to remember. With History, as long as you revise and know the different topics then you should be fine. Generally people do better in their A2 exams than they do in their AS ones for essay subjects

    I've always been a newspaper geek, and my main aim after university is to become a culture journalist. Even though everyone is telling me that social media is going to make print journalism obsolete soon. That's interesting, what made you want to become a teacher?

    I felt like that about English. My teacher was awful at marking our essays and the level of reading felt a bit overwhelming (I did the AQA Victorian synoptic exam). But if you enjoy History you should reconsider dropping it-what subject are you keeping in its place?

    Thanks, you too
