ok i took history for AS level, despite not taking the GCSE. I dont regret it as i enjoy it the majority of the time, but whereas with a lot of people in my class the work just seems to 'sink' in. It is not the case with me. At the beginning of the lesson our teacher usually goesa round and asks questions about the work we did the previous lesson, but i just dont remember it as much as everyone else. I did an essay and got 18/19 out of 24 which is ok for a first essay. I know that i will drop this after AS as it was a subject i mainly chose as there wasn much else in the option block and i did regret not taking it at GCSE.

gcse? which subject are you referring to?
edit: ah right. Yeah I get where you are coming from- I really enjoy history but at the moment none of the facts seem to be sticking at all (alongside the fact our history teacher prefers to wacth footage of obama's speeches than stick to the syllabus..)
I think one of the best ways to counter this is just revision, revision, revision after school. Make spider diagrams, whatever you like. Just keep looking over it and you'll get there.Last edited by rachxl; 10-11-2008 at 21:19.

keep chipping away at history, learn the dates of key events first and work on that and you will do fine, work on your essay techinque and just keep on reading through the work you have to know.

revise would be my advice, and if you are finding it really difficult ask your teacher for extra lessons maybe?
