Hi! I did the Modern Britain (1951-2007) course and USA for a level. The Britain course is pretty good imo I really enjoyed it.

Personally my biggest piece of advice would be to write up notes to revise from as soon as you've finished a modules. E.g. once you've finished Conservative Dominance 1951-64 write up the political, social, economic and foreign policy notes/ key events, changes, legislation, etc. I didn't start writing up these properly until Easter before my exams and it made the whole experience ten times more stressful.

I made essay plans to awkwardly worded questions, and did timed essays and exam practice. I also made massive mindmaps to revise from using different colours for different factors and all that jazz.

Other than that try and enjoy the course? It's quite interesting and the later years are very reflective of whats going on now in Britain lol

Hope this helps, (sorry its not the best I can hardly remember revising now) and if you need any help let me know. Good luck!

If you don't mind me asking: what grade did you attain in A-Level History?
Thank you - I've already starting typing and consolidating my notes. I don't want a repeat of what I did throughout my GCSEs!
