Hi. I have a place to do History at Oxford, and I want to get ahead on some of the reading before October, but I'm not too sure about what reading to do because I don't know how module choice works.

I know you need to pick a medieval, early modern and modern module across the three years, but is it the case that if you pick a modern module in the first year, you can't do modern for finals (my interest is modern history)? If it's any help, my place is at LMH and I think the tutors specialise in the French Revolution and 17th century Britain - will this impact the first year, and do any current students there have any advice? For the Historical Methods paper, do you tend to pick Approaches to History or Historiography? All advice is appreciated. Thx

For a detailed look at how modules work you may be able to find the History department's handbook online - google "Oxford course handbooks"

There are enough papers that you will be able to study a few modern history modules throughout your degree. Your tutors' research won't influence your studies that much as you will be able to select modules taught by tutors at other colleges. In first year you will study one of four historical method options: a broad history of historical methods; approaches to history; a work in a foreign language; or quantative methods.

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (593)
Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (720)
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (347)
I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (79)
