Should you do GCSE classics if you’re really bad at history Watch
FYI our school do OCR for classics at gcse
i do both and class civ is actually very different to history. it does have a lot of essays but while history essays are more like taking inferences and linking events, class civ is more explaining events and honestly just recalling knowledge. you learn more about the community and how ancient people lived, like where they went to school, their beliefs, etc, instead of learning about timelines and importance of events and taking inferences from sources and stuff, which you do in history. half the course isnt even on actual history, just mythology. i wouldnt worry about being bad at history at all, the technique for the essays is really simple and its a really fun and interesting subject.
