I hate a-level historyWatch
The topics themselves are okay but the learning side of it is what is letting me down. I don't really care about Krushchev or Stalin or how Henry VII had a weird childhood. I can't remember dates or facts or even events for the life of me. I guess I'm gonna have to push through because I need 3 A-levels, not 2.
In terms of asking for help, there's no shame in it. I ended up asking my teacher to help me write an example essay paragraph in the first term of Y2 of A levels, and that completely chnged my perspective on history essays as a whole, and took me up by 2 grades. It can be scarey, but your teachers are paid to help you to learn, so as long as you ask nicely I can't see any reason why they'd refuse.
You can do it. I know it feels bad now, but I found Y13 so much better than Y12 in terms of history. Soon you'll have the whole summer to help yourself to understand the topics a bit more, and to have some rest in order to return in September with a fresh mindset.
I hate history and I cannot get my head around all the dates and the topics such a Tudors and Cold War. I thought I'd like the coursework but I hate the American Civil War too... I just want to quit but I only took 3 a-levels and I've nearly done an entire year of history. I know it's too late to quit but I'm too scared to ask for help. At this point, I'm just am ready to fail History... What should I do??
