I want to study history at a levels but i don't know if i can. I got a c* in my first test (1 Mark of a b). I have to get a minimum of a b overall to study it for a levels. My exam board is ccea. If you're not with ccea or dont know; the test that I took was worth 60% and the next will be 40%. So, do u know what I need to get in the next test, or do u think I should do something else?

I believe the A-level in History is largely independent of the GCSE in terms of assumed knowledge and content. While they may develop some of the same transferable skills in essay writing and exam technique, I get the impression a lot of students find GCSE History isn't any particular benefit in doing the A-level anyway.

Thus, whether you can do it is down to your school depending on your results and their policies. Just carefully evaluate why you didn't do as well as you hoped this time and think about what you can do to improve for the next. Since we don't know what the grade boundaries are for your qualification, nobody can work out how much you should get on the next assessment, although I would suggest not thinking in terms of the minimum necessary and trying to do as well as possible generally.
