    i am currently considering my A-level options, i heard it is useful to have GCSE in history for this subject,which i dont, would i be at a disadvantage if i chose this option?

    No, you wouldn't be at a disadvantage, the content is nothing like it.

    if you want to do it, go for it. history gcse is useful for exam technique and probably some political understanding, but really there is no overlap in the gov and pol course and gcse history course so it shouldn't really put you at a disadvantage if you don't do it.
