    I am going to make the assumption that the Dictatorship and democracies topic has something to do with Nazi Germany. If it is and you did Nazi Germany for GCSE History then I would say that this would be the easier one to Study. However if you didn't do Nazi Germany for GCSE History then you may find the Tudors easier to study.

    If Dictatorship and democracies have nothing to do with Nazi Germany then I would say that the Tudors would be more interesting, hence easier to study for.

    Overall it comes down to preference and interest.

    Hope this helped

    Well, I've done both so I can guess I might be able to help. Tudors is by far the easier one and a lot more helpful to you if you're doing English Lit as well.

    Dictatorships and Democracies is quite broad, but I did mine on Nazi Germany, and I know someone here already said it was easier - it's easy to grasp the main facts but very difficult to piece everything together for the wider picture; for example, there are precious few remaining documents on Nazi Germany and ones that do remain were taken by the USSR who had their own reasons for making things up so to big up their own country - the myth that Hitler killed himself sprung from the USSR that found and took "Hitler's" body in the bunker was long since confirmed to be fake, but so many now believe it. It's also hard because of the several different factors and factions going on within Germany itself AND in the world at large.

    Tudors by comparison is relatively straightforward, honestly.

    I personally would say that Dictatorship and Democracies is easier to study as I find that the course is a lot more interesting although that is a matter of opinion.
    For you Tudors could be easier due to your option of English Literature, it depends on how you work tudors tends to be a factual recall themed topic so if you learn more in black and white you will find it easier, I got B in this section of my combined grade however for the Dictatorship and Democracies section ( I did Nazi Germany) I came out with an A* as it requires a lot of thinking outside the box an applying knowledge.
    Both require a lot of remembering and being able to get it onto paper in a certain way which I am sure your teacher will teach you all about.
    In History the structure of essays is almost as important as the knowledge.
