    I haven't studied history since I was 14 however It was always my best subject. My parents made me choose ict for gcse instead of history and i have always regretted it. In my free time i watch a lot of historical documentaries and watch a lot of historical dramas ( nerd i know) I also read a lot of historical books and have a keen interest in all things history. I was just wondering if it would be stupid of me to apply to a history course even though i havent studied it for gcse or a level? I did achieve an A in A level relgious studies and English literature so the essay writing wouldnt be a shock for me ,im just afraid incase there are skills id need to know before studying at degree level. Thankyou

    You would need to find unis which didn't require A-level History, of course.

    In the meantime, try reading Black and MacRaild's 'Studying History'.
