    How ****ed am I?


    The teacher said it's no problem that I haven't done History GCSE, since I've done Classical Civilisation as an alternative, however, I am sceptical.

    Any tips?

    I didn't do GCSE History and chose it for AS-level and I was fine. Some of the skills that you need, are freshly taught at AS-level anyway; which is pretty much the same content as Pre-U courses.

    Just go with what your teacher does. I don't have any particular tips about how to study History as that sort of thing will be taught throughout the year.

    Good luck sugar!

    After a few lessons of History, I can confidently say it's my favourite subject now. I guess the focus is on the reading and information storing, as well as communication through writing.

    Thanks
