If you think you can learn how to write the essays and can do well at it then take it. I did history and loved it
I am also appalling at English and spelling

History exam technique changes a bit from GCSE to A Level anyway and you’re taught how to do it.

Like all essay based subjects, it’ll be difficult. You’ll really need to read around the subject as well as doing extra work in order for you to get the best grades.

What kind of history is it and what modules would you be doing?

I just finished Modern History and we did: Tsarist & Communist Russia, Britain 1951-2007, and the French Revolution as coursework and I can say without a doubt that it was really difficult in my opinion.

If you find it interesting then it’ll be easier to do because you’ll have the motivation to do the work etc. I was a bit shaken because I did pre-modern history at GCSE and got an A* and then realised that modern history at A-Level was like a totally alien concept

If you really find it interesting, do it. You’re taught how to do everything so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to get top marks
