Help and advice requested


Hi Everyone,

So I have a question that I would like to ask regarding qualifications and hope I am in the right part of the forum to ask sorry if not.

Bit about me, I'm mid thirties in the UK with a full time job and family. I have no official qualifications in history and as I grow older start to think I missed out.

Now I am wondering if I could possibly move along to a possible career change and it leads me to think about about history topics.

So my question is if I was going to start, would an A-Level be a good place to start? This is going to be distance learned due to the full time commitment of work.

Hello, Chesh.

It is a shame that you feel that you have missed out. As I am doing my A-Levels in History at this time, I can say that if you choose to change direction, it would be a good place to start, due to how A-Levels in History are viewed nowerdays,

Hope this helped,
Luke

Hi Luke,

Thanks for the response, curious what you mean by 'due to how A-Levels in History are viewed nowerdays'?

Now - according to my History Teacher, A-Levels in Histor are well sought after
