    Neither's "better", from an objective point of view.
    It just depends on which you'd enjoy more, and which you think you'd do better at.

    I would just choose the option that you enjoy the most because from experience, doing an a level that you end up not enjoying can just be torture....especially revising for it!

    It really depends on what you'll enjoy most, it's better to come out with 4 good grades with subjects you enjoy than 2 good and 2 mediocre etc with 2 you may not enjoy as much.

    It depends what you want to do at University; but if you were to be applying to a subject unrelated to History or English (e.g. Medicine), then I can't imagine there being any difference in how respected they are.

    Although it is your choice entirely, I would go for lit as opposed to history
    But they are both seen as quite hard A Levels and Uni's respect them the same way.

    I think number 1 may be slightly more respected, but only very slightly. Plus if you randomly decide you want to go into History, not all universities require History A level whereas if you wanted to go into English most universities do require it. That's literally the only other thing I can think of which could separate it... other than enjoyment of course. Personally I love both but Lit is like 10x more work than any other A-level and requires self-motivation, passion and lots and lots of independent learning.

    I'd go for number 2 personally.
    They are both as respected as each other so choose the one you'll enjoy the most.
