Honestly, they're very alike. The main differences are, I personally did 4 topics at GCSE and now only do 2 at A-Level. The exams are better in my opinion as well. You study a source/extract for one question and the next will be an essay based question like how far do you agree. It's very enjoyable if you like it at GCSE, you learn in much the same way and will have a bit of coursework too.

I do AQA, there are two topics we study:
One breadth study (over a longer period of time E.G Tudors 1485-1603)
One width study (over a shorter period of time but in more depth E.G Russia 1917-1953)
Essay questions are 25 marks and source questions are 30 marks at A2
Similar to GCSE but a lot more focused and analytical

i do CCEA and i can say that in fourth year I did Nazi Germany 1933-1939 and Northern ireland 1968-2000.
In fifth year it was the cold war all the way from 1945 to 1991. at A level we do Germany again only this time its right from the Weimar republic up to 1944. we also do Ireland 1830-1860. in upper sixth (A2) we do the american presidents from 1900-2000 and ireland from 1900-2000
