Reading for A-Levels... Watch
I will be starting A-levels in Politics, History and Economics in September, and have been given some reading lists for these subjects. However, I really don't like reading and find that not only do I get bored and also forget what I've read and have to keep re-reading paragraphs, but I constantly have to stop to search up a word. So, do you need to read extra books for A-levels to get into a good uni? Should you take notes about the books you read as you go along so you don't forget? Advice needed!
If it's entirely optional and you don't like reading, then you could consider trying to find:
a) summaries (or detailed reviews) of the book (however, these often don't go into a lot of depth)
b) documentaries/videos/podcasts by the authors of the books on the same topic (e.g. Freakonomics for Econs)
c) newspaper articles/documentaries/videos/podcasts that discuss the same topics as the assigned books (e.g. Crash Course YouTube videos, Philip Allan magazines).
...it all kind of depends on exactly what you've been told to do. Good luck!
