One week into starting A Levels and I'm finding history very hard to get my head around! Is anyone else doing the Tudors AQA and how are you finding it? I can't seem to be able to understand who is who etc!

Cant say i found it that confusing, but why not create a fact sheet with the main characters on?

Everytime you get a new character make a note for them. Make a timeline

Far as I recall you need to know:
Who was the monarch plus immediate family
Who were the powerful nobles or ministers.
King of France and King of Spain.
Maybe the pope
Anyone in rebellion.

I dont think its that confusing, so maybe just stick with it.

The treaties on the other hand get a bit complex. So a timeline really helps with those.

We're just about to start it properly after a few introductory lessons to the period and the Wars of the Roses.

Revising it all will be difficult but I'm sure we can make it through it.

I studied AQA History but not the Tudors; I did the Stuarts. However, I study History at Degree Level so if you want any help, hit me up.

If you're just struggling to learn people - you just need to sit down and list the relevant ones out, make fact sheets or illustrations and get them in your head. It will come soon enough; it's very early on so don't panic.

I'm glad.

To be honest, remember also that when you start to get essays written on stuff, the names will start to get engrained from regular reference! So, yeah, try not to worry too much. I'm sure you're more than capable.
