No problem - let me know how you get on if you choose to study it :)
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged."

Hi!! Yeah I finished my History A Level a year ago. I think the most important thing for you is making sure the units your school does are interesting and you can see yourself motivating personal study and reading. Every school has different units. I know other students at uni studied medieval history at A2 which I was never given the choice to study. Once you’ve made sure the units are something you would enjoy then it’s up to more practical issues. Essay writing, personal study and historiography become far more important than at GCSE and the exams are simply long essay questions, versus the shorter answers you have in year 11. It’s a tough A level, especially once you get to A2 (coursework is 4,000 words of your own personal study. It’s like a mini dissertation. It’s also similar to an EPQ), but if you continuously keep on top of the content and do some extra reading (I.e. I read Wild Swans when studying Mao’s China because it gave me a better understanding of personal experience) you’ll be fine. Any other questions just let me know :)
