hey guys. I'm an international student from Syria whose going to take his A Levels this year. I am going to take three fast track A Levels as that's how our school organizes it. I'll be doing Maths,Economics and History. My question is will I be able to cope with self studying history? I'm taking both AS & A2 in May/June. How hard will it be? I love history and do not mind all the reading and memorizing..the only thing nagging at me is the essay technique. I'm not particularly great at writing essays and the A Level essays I've read so far have been so fantastic that I've been thoroughly convinced I won't be able to do it. Is it THAT hard? My goal is to achieve at least a B. Any advice would be helpful. PS: I'd have all the books that I need however I won't have any teacher to guide me and assign/mark essays :l

I think it would be quite difficult to self teach history! I did my AS this year and honestly we had quite a lot of help with essay techniques because they are quite hard to write, especially at the beginning. also you would surely benefit more from a teacher's input/feedback on your work? or there may be sites online you could use for this, not sure. Best of luck

I feel as though I taught myself history A-Level. I recommend you spend the first few months on learning the content and the important events. Have a clear idea of what happens when. Then spend much time on essay technique. A lot of marks can be gained by simply having good essay technique.
