for history a level -

am i going to need to fill in any ‘knowledge gaps’ from gcse to be prepared for a level?

i know i should probably look at question layouts and plans but other than that, is there anything else i need to know from gcse history for a level history?

these are the topic i did at gcse -
- america: opportunity and equality
- conflict and tension in asia: korea and vietnam
- britain’s people: elizabeth england
- britain’s health: medicine

these are the topics that i will do at a level -
- Tsarist and Communist Russia 1855- 1964 *Part One 1855-1917
*Part Two 1917-1964
- Wars and Welfare 1906-1957 Part One 1906- *1929 Part Two 1929-1957
- Historical Investigation

thank you

I wouldn't worry too much about knowledge gaps in terms of facts as you're going to be studying completely different historical topics at A level. If you can get hold of any bits of reading to do around the time frames, that might be interesting.
Just bear in mind that A level requires more analysis than GCSE, and bouncing arguments off each other is always good at A level (need to ask WHY more - The History Boys is a good film to watch for an idea of the higher level needed)

Tbh nothing really. I went into A level history doing different topics from what I did from GCSE. I suggest you watch some documentaries or some youtube videos to get a rough overview of what you'll be learning and looking at the specification of the topics and exam structure
