    I'm having to catch up cuz, in year 10 I struggled quiet a bit one of my biggest worries being history, I got some really encouraging advice on m last post telling me to keep going which I will try and do but the problem is I'm not sure how to fit things in again, I borrowed a book from school it's just titled Britain 1815-1851 by Dave Martin which I'm trying to get through but it's taking a while. Is this the best approach in order to teach myself there are also revision guides where it's shortened but I couldn't understand them before I read the book which makes me think if I just go by the revision guides I won't have enough information to get me a grade, how should I revise? Has anyone done history or been in this situation I'd appreciate your advice?
    Plus I want to do science based subjects for a level which I need to get into higher for in order to take them (I'm in middle set) should I just scrap history & focus on those?

    okay, first things first, try not to panick too much, i did end up understanding the course but not within the time period i would have liked. Ask to 'borrow' a text book over summer. if you're teacher says no, ask a different history teacher. Or ask A different history teacher for help in general, they wont say no. or ask a classmate????

    please don't beat yourself up about it. I know exactly how you feel, like your lifes falling apart and everyones is just watching and not caring?

    but im sure at least one of these steps will work if not pm me!!!
