Hello

I know this is subject to opinion and it 'depends on what you like best', but which history course sounds more interesting to you at A-Level?

Pathway 1: World History, you will be studying topics including Russia, 1917–91, from Lenin to Yeltsin; Mao's China 1949–76; Protest, Agitation and Parliamentary reform in Britain 1780 – 1928; and historical interpretations.

In Pathway 2: European History, you will be studying topics including Britain 1625-1701 - conflict, revolution and settlement; France in Revolution, 1774-99; Germany 1871-1990, united, divided, reunited; and historical interpretations. Significant changes mean that History A Level is now a linear qualification, with all assessments at the end of the two-year course.


Thanks

pathway 2 sounds fascinating. at first I thought pathway 1 because that essentially covers russia's duration as a communist country, including the entire cold war.

however pathway two covers the french revolution which is really exciting, and the germany topic too is possibly the most exciting part of germany's history, covering the rise and fall of hitler, the cold war, and fall of the berlin wall. sounds a lot more diverse than pathway 1

I'd go for Pathway 2 myself, but that's only because that's completely personal preference.

I am currently studying Britain 1625-1701 - conflict, revolution and settlement and I can honestly say that it is unless it is a time period you are genuinely interested in it can be quite confusing and boring at the same time. Pathway A sounds better to me but you may prefer pathway B, it's your personal taste.
