    Maths = scary! Happy to leave that behind after GCSE Although I have got to do statistics this year (terrified already) for my degree - I study psychology & speech pathology (speech and language therapy) and this year the emphasis is more on the psychology elements.

    Have to say though if you do go with sociology it goes well with psychology - and it is (or was anyway) all exam based so removes the coursework element that is involved in all English options.

    Good luck

    I'm not doing combined English Language and Literature but I am doing both separately.

    Literature: Analysing fictional texts and looking at writers techniques.
    Language: Analysing non-fictional texts, looking at ways writers use words/graphology/etc to convey their point. You have to learn terminology a lot as well as know all of the word classes etc.

    Both are enjoyable. I'd say I don't have a favourite between them yet, both have their ups and their downs. I got an A* in both subjects at GCSE.

    Haha I know maths is scary even though I am good at it in GCSE apparently A levels is way harder! I think sociology will be more enjoyable even though I am good at English and its more respected at universities, I think I'll go with sociology as its well combined with psychology. Thanks for your help
