Heya, so I'm studying CCEA AS Level History in Northern Ireland (the units I'm studying are Weimar & Nazi Germany & Russia, btw) and I've been finding it kinda hard as I didn't do History at GCSE level so most people are familiar with the way it works...just wondering if anyone has any tips?

Get revision books and learn the material then practice exams.


The biggest tip I can give is that it is very simple and you need to read the question carefully and give them what they ask for.

Watch documentaries on youtube as well.

All your areas are covered in detail all over the place plus there are lots of revision books.

thank you!!
Just to put that into context once you get a feel for questions they ask, then you understand what areas you need to cover and what they want. That is the absolute key to writing essays. You can then do all the other things such as id issues, structure your essay, analyse, evaluate plus add details. History is basically simple once you understand the way to approach questions.

Download exam papers, start to appreciate the structure and you will get comfortable with how they ask questions.

I have absolutely no idea! Our teacher hasn't really made any predictions...do you have any thoughts?
