A level history?Watch this thread
I love gcse history shall I take it at a level is it hard? And would you recommend?
Its a lot more in depth at A level plus it shifts away from memorisation of facts and events and towards analysis, opinion, cause and consequence. It is known for a very high volume of coursework, so its painful if you find it dull but ok if it interests you. Talk to your teacher and look at the specification to see what periods you might cover and whether they interest you.

i was considering history (i didnt put it down on the options form but i was considering it) the main thing that throws me off tho is the coursework, like it sounds something that id be very interested in, but from gcse coursework experience (for food tech and art), im not very good at keeping on top of it all. idk if itd be different at alevel, or if id find myself in the same position lol
Coursework isn't even the worst part. 3000-4000 words sounds like a lot but that's the easiest part. The most difficult thing about A-level history is knowing everything you need to know for your exams. You get 45 minutes (for OCR history) to write an essay which isn't enough.
... except that you can’t compare a levels with gcse’s lmfao, students frequently run out of time because the amount of depth + analysis you have to go into within the time constraints of your exams is ,,? a lot
