History HL- I haven't done history at GCSEsWatch
Okay, So I've never done history at GCSE level,is it a bad idea to take it at higher level? I do enjoy the subjects, but will it be hard to get on board with what's going on?
Content is expected to be new so everyone will be at the same level in that sense, I think the hardest thing will be formulating the essay, it is already a step up from GCSE so everyone struggles at the beginning and if you have achieved highly in other essay subjects then you should be okay. Just remember to address the question at the end of each paragraph and be evaluative throughout, don't just tell the story and state the facts. Maybe look at writing history essays on youtube. What modules does your school do?
Also, I'm not exactly sure yet- I completely forgot to ask :s I wasn't sure if I was doing history until the day in which I enrolled at the school. Do you recommend any youtube channels? Since I honestly have no clue, but I'll look around for sure Thank you!!
I had similar doubts but a friend showed me ibessays.org/samples and I got over most challenging hurdles. Helps to have a resource that can help when needed so I thought i'd recommend it to you as you seem to be in a similar boat
