    Little dilemma

    I'm first year taking history, sociology & eng lit
    I'm enjoying history, was originally tempted to drop sociology and unsure on whether to drop eng lit.. I got a B at GCSE (probably wanted an A tbh but idc) and didn't really think about how much I would have to read for the A level. The problem is I don't really enjoy reading rn, but I feel like that could change.

    So here's the problem:
    Should I drop eng lit, where I'm not the biggest reading fan, seems difficult, i have no friends in class for support (in contrast to eg. psychology which also ties in with sociology) OR should I stick with eng lit, learn to read, get my head down and gain a good a level where the teachers have admitted they think i'd do well and love me on the course? I feel like my brain is attempting to do what i would always previously loved to do, find the easy way out, but this is A level and I'm obviously getting older so I can't keep doing that forever

    this question is really poorly structured so please ask any questions i just need advice as honestly im super close to switching but also super close to staying!

    Your presumably at least 2 weeks into the course (probably more), so you will have missed lots of the introductory work, which is lots of subjects can be the basis of the whole A Level, so you'd probably be better off sticking with English Lit especially as the teachers have said you can do well.
