Degree: Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Studies (Bachelors) - Cambridge University
I have just finished my first year at the University of Cambridge studying Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic (this is similar to a Classics course. I study the history, languages and literature of medieval Britain and Scandinavia). I am passionate about history and languages and hope to stay in academia once I finished my degree.
At GCSE and A-Level I helped my classmates with revision. I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for my subjects and help others to pass their exams as well.
About the Sessions:
You will decide what we cover, choosing the topics you find you want help with. We will make sure that you understand the course content, any useful background details as well as focussing on exam technique and how to answer questions.
Everyone learns differently, so we will find the way that helps you most. This may be through mind-maps, diagrams, analogies or many other ways. I hope our sessions will be interesting as well as useful and help you develop a wider knowledge of the subject.
Universtiy and Oxbridge:
I have been through the UCAS application process and the special forms needed for Cambridge, as well as interviews so if you plan to take your studies further I can offer some advice.

Whilst you can gain extra marks from having recent examples to illustrate your points, a knowledge of the course content is more important than knowing precise details of current affairs. Detials about elections and referendums in the last twenty years are more important than knowing current debates.see more
Textbooks and a few core texts recommended by your teacher will often suffice, however reading a few good overviews of the period will help you to better understand it and provide examples or explanations not mentioned in class. However it is better to know the course content better than to be distracted by detailed academic arguments. For coursework, wider reading is necessary however it will tend to be more specialised and will probably be limited to twenty articles or chapters of books.see more
