It was BBC TV’s ‘Horrible Histories’ that sparked my huge interest in history! Twelve years on, I’m studying History A Level,

along with Politics and English. 

Studying A Levels after GCSEs has been very different - and stimulating - making a huge difference to the learning experience. And I now manage my time more efficiently! 

I’ve also experienced some fascinating extra-curricular activities, including a trip to Krakow - and Auschwitz - which was as poignant as it was harrowing.

The history topic I most enjoyed studying was Civil Rights in America, because I knew little about it before. At Uni, I’ll be reading Politics with history providing the essential context.


History, Politics and English Language and Literature A Levels.
