    Your website is truly wonderful Mr Allsop, it has helped me greatly with my History GCSE. I revise by creating notes from what you say and my German Depth Study and International Relations paper went so so well! I am currently studying for my British Depth Study exam tomorrow, thank you for all the revision material!

    Hello Mr Allsop
    Thank you for all the hard work you have done in creating all these revision podcasts and videos for students such as myself to have a chance in passing exams. I’m a South Sudanese living in Nairobi Kenya East Africa. I have been doing IGCSE system here for the past three years. I found your website a year ago. Before then I had no hope in taking history because of the vast notes but when I found your website my interest in no longer taking history changed and from that day onward I didn’t just like history I love it and tomorrow date 16 of June 2014 I will be doing the first paper. I wrote this comment to thank you. Now I have the confidence to pass. You have been quite a teacher Sir. Keep up the good work.

      Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful message. It’s made me incredibly happy to know that my podcasts have helped in some small way to develop your understanding and love for History. I hope that your exams go well, and wish you all the best in the future.

        So lucky to have you as my teacher Mr Allsop. Your website is very helpful and the podcasts are an extremely good way to study the information. Keep it going sir.

        • Mr Allsop says:

          Thanks, Asser. Good luck with everything next year :)

    Hi great revision material but please can you remove the background music , quite distracting or could you replace it for something more suitable for revision like baroque music or something

  4. meela says:

    how do you use them for revision? do you just listen to it or take notes at the same time? sorry for the questions but I just cant seem to remember all the facts for my gcse exam and I really need a good technique to study. Thankyou for your time.

    • Mr Allsop says:

      Hi Meela

      Different people like to revise in different way, so I’ll be interested to see what suggestions other users have. At the start of each podcast I give suggestions of revision techniques that you might try. Things you might like to try are using information to make flashcards, draw mindmaps of the themes discussed in each podcast, or create tables to compare the two sides of an argument.

      Some people like to just listen to the podcasts when they’re travelling, but I think it’s important to do something active with the content rather than just passively trying to soak it in. Creating something gets different parts of your brain to work, and so makes retention of information much more effective.

    Great info. The soundtrack in the background needs to be changed “I predict a riot”

  6. Molly says:

    It would be really good if you did American Civil Rights 1945-1968 which I am currently studying at AS Level, but thank you for all the stuff on Russia – it’s really helping me revise for my mock exams next week!

  7. Leeza says:

    Dear Mr Allsop,

    Your website is GREAT! It saved my life during GCSE’s and it could save me again if there was some revision material on the OCR French Nation State course (1498-1610) and Charlemagne’s wars for the coursework part.

    Many thanks.

  8. Andrea says:

    Truly this website was a blessing because I was so scared. I am currently about to take my mock IGCSE exams in China, Shenzhen. Thank you so much for your website!

    • Mr Allsop says:

      Hi Andrea. Thank you for your message, and I’m glad you found the website helpful for doing your revision. Good luck with your mocks.

  9. izzy says:

    Please do Russia under Stalin and Lenin. These podcasts helped so much at GCSE, would love them for A-Level.

  10. MYK says:

    Truly an amazing website! The podcasts are greatly appreciated.
    Are there any podcasts in the depth study: CUBA AND VIETNAM. Since that is our depth study (sourcework) paper for finals.

    Kind regards

  11. Brixie says:

    Can you do Communist Russia under Lenin and Stalin please? Your GCSE podcasts got me that A*, would love to have them for A-Level too.

    • mrallsop says:

      I don’t currently have any plans to create podcasts on Communist Russia under Lenin and Stalin, but do have links to some useful videos that cover this period of time in the Russia and the USSR 1905-1941 category.

  12. Kayla says:

    Am struggling with The Unification of Italy & Germany
    The Origins of World War 1 and The Industrial Revolution in the UK
    Is it possible to help me out

    • mrallsop says:

      I have produced revision podcasts on the Unification of Germany and Italy (although the Italy series isn’t finished yet). I also have podcasts for the Origins of World War 1. Click the highlighted links to be taken to each section.

      I’m afraid I don’t have anything on the Industrial Revolution yet.

  13. Lulu says:

    Hi can you do some podcasts on USA so the race issue and foreign policies please??? The Germany podcasts have been really helpful!!!

    Superb website!!! I am so glad I saw this one. Used to get low A’s in history now I probably will get an A*! Thank you so much.

  19. Ato says:

    Can you please cover all of the 1848 revolutions next?

    • mrallsop says:

      Hi there. I assume you mean the revolutions in other European countries beyond the German states? If so, I’ll add them to my ‘to do’ list!
