Workload and experience of these particular A-Levels? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm going to be choosing my A-levels for definite soon, and I was wondering about the workload and experience of these particular A-levels? I'm worried about having so much work I can't cope, so have any of you done these A-levels, and what were they like?

    -Classical Civilisations
    -History/Geography (AS)

    (Also, do they look like I could get into a good uni with them if I did well?)

    I can only speak for History - and it's deffo my hardest A-Level (I also do English Lit, Maths and French).

    The workload is quite high only due to the fact that there's so much to learn, and also the fact that you're going to be writing a lot of practice essays for revision.

    Regardless, I don't want to put you off history. Whilst it's hard, it's also very very interesting! Also regarding your question about whether your choices will get you into a good uni, they all seem quite respected, good A-Levels.

    Good luck with your choices
