History should be allowed to be compulsory for GCSE. I have many reasons for this. If History is compulsory then that mean everyone will know the history of Britain fully and will be full aware of what is happening in the world. History helps us to understand the word more and realise how lucky we are as well as making us think deep about this. History being compulsory means that we can learn more about World War 1 and 2. This is why we should make History compulsory for GSCE. Please understand.


I think History should not be compulsory because History is really bad. Try beating that ukvoltaire. :-)

Lol. We'll see how this goes.
@HarryLewis1234 Look over my comments, it's an easy win if you base arguments off of that. :)

I know you mean the subject history, but you need to specify which era of history to which you are referring. Leaving it as subjective as "history" is indeterminable. We could either be discussing the Berlin Wall or when Hannibal crossed the Alps. Clarification is essential to the success and acceptance of such a disputable resolution. Simply narrowing down the notion to a certain era will greatly benefit the debate and competitors.
