The Bismarckian era, mainly because we spent practically all of year 12 on it and it was dry anyway.
Also the industrial revolution, done to death.

I am guessing in that statement you aren't including early modern? I like studying the cultural/social history of the 20th century but not interested as much in things like decolonaisation and have studied Cold War too much.

I like Tudors, and the English Civil War when it comes to British History. I am open to trying more Medieval Britain

GCSE China. Oh my god it was just the most boring irrelevant thing ever.

It's like a whole module of lefty teachers telling you how amazeballs socialism is whilst teaching you how it's just the worst thing ever. Mao killed everyone yo, but he's cool.

All of it. History is for the people who don’t have a future.

I find Anglo-Saxon and Norman Britain quite tedious. So far Crime and Punishment has been my most interesting GCSE course.

I found majority of things related to Britain boring, except the war of the Roses and I found the French Huguenots and the Holy Roman Empire quite boring.
I did those in Italy, so I don't know if is covered at GCSE

To be honest, it depends on what topics you enjoy. For example, I'm in year 11 and my topics are Normans, WW1, and America. The only topic I dislike is the Normans as there is a lot of content to remember.

Nah, it's pretty much Chinese history being boring. I really couldn't care less about it. Commies took over and murdered just about everyone. We don't learn from it, so what's the point?

Actually I can't remember to read a boring period of human history. Maybe the ones which were repeating many times, but in total, I have never been bored.
