For GCSE's I found it very easy to find a variety of revision sources but for A-level it's really hard, especially since my favourite form of revision is videos and I can't find any for my History A-level course.

History: AQA
Breadth Study (1C The Tudors: England, 1485 - 1603)
Depth Study (2K International Relations and Global Conflict, c. 1890 - 1941)
(I find the depth study very difficult)

If anyone knows someone I could contact in order to create History revision sources, that would be great
Thanks x

Hey I did History for A levels and then my degree, so I could help. I'd say invest in books from ur time era, especially for the second topic (international relations and global conflict), as there are many useful general books on that time-frame. one book that my sister bought for me on that period that i found useful, was J.M. Robert's book on world history

I haven't thought about what unis I want to go to yet. I think I want to study joint honours of History and English but i'm unsure where as I've only just started Yr12
