I've always had such a passion for history, Growing up i've alway been fasinated by it. When i went to high school i obviously got taught it and like i predicted i again really enjoyed it. But in then in year 8 I moved to a private school which unfortuanely didnt let me take it (not because of me, the school didn't offer the course), I'm leaving my High school with good grades, but i still would LOVE to study history.

(If it helps a little character analysis :P)- I am extremely hard working, and generally a good Student.

For those of you who studied History for GCSE and A-Level, do you apply things to learnt at GCSE to your A-Level? is any of the course content similer? I REALY NEED HELP!!

I have friends who didn't do GCSE but did history for a level, and there been predicted As. So I'd say no, you don't need GCSE - the examiners are looking for different things and you get taught how to write the essays. Hope this helps

You don't really need to have done GCSE History to do it at A level. Things that you learn at GCSE (such as comparing and evaluating sources) are taught at A level anyway. As long as you're good at English and writing essays you will be fine. I don't think doing GCSE History has helped me in any way with my A level course!
