Marko (History)

Year 13


History is my favourite subject, especially in A level. I am particularly interested in modern history, and I like how the A-Level course covers a vast geographical and cultural range, from the British Experience of warfare to Soviet Russia to Mao’s China. The teachers teach the topics in an engaging and unbiased way and encourage us to question and evaluate common perceptions of historical events, for example, whether Field Marshal Haig should be considered a butcher of the Western Front. I also feel that history underpins every other subject, and gives a sense of continuity in the world around us.
