    English Lit is definitely better than ICT I believe.
    It's hard to say which one is harder though because it all depends on what you're good at.

    Why ask then? Do something because you want to, not because people on an internet student forum say so...

    It depends -
    What do you want to post- A Level?
    What will you achieve the best grade in (between English Lit or ICT)?
    Which one do you find easier at the moment?

    I'd say in terms of reputation, English Literature is ranked higher than ICT. But essentially reputation probably doesn't matter because your other three subjects are very strong. I don't know how easy ICT is, and I'm guessing it will have its difficulties, but I'd still say English Literature, for most people, is generally a bit more difficult.

    No, clear career route. Thus physics for a wide spectrum. Preferably entrepeneur(dream job)

    don't do ICT, trust me, i wanted to do it until i realised its a waste of time.
    universities don't like it because they think its and easy subject even though it might not be to some people and has allot of coursework.
    ICT is also vocational, vocational courses are designed for dumb people, people who cant really learn and apply their knowledge in a an exam.

    English lit is allot harder, you have to do allot of reading and its nothing like gcse, you have to read the book yourself and come up with your own ideas.
    but it is very respected by universities.

    so you can choose depending on this info,
    do ICT if you think you will find a levels hard and wont be able to cope.
    Do English if your clever, can handle it and want to be more appealing to Universities.

    Then essentially I don't think it matters either way. Personally, I'd go for whatever you'll do better in, and which ever you'll enjoy the most. I'd choose English Lit, because I always found ICT a bit dull, but that's just personal preference, and you should choose in the same way.

    English Literature will probably be a bit harder but if you don't mind putting in the effort, or are slightly better at it than IT then go for English. Your options are very science heavy and english is an essay-based subject which shows a better balance of skills.

    On the other hand, if neither are relevant to what you want to do in the future, just pick the one that interests you the most or the one you will do best in. After all, if for example you choose to do Maths, ICT and English will both be irrelevant and therefore the university's interest will be in the grade you can get for your fourth subject not what it actually is.

    Hmm. I'm good at english (writing stories and such, my vocabulary is exemplary reading books as a young kid constantly.)
    However, I'm very good at ICT to, everyone comes to me for tech help.

    English Lit IMO, because it is well-respected and an enjoyable subject. Though if you want to do physics perhaps consider FM?

    I would probably say that English Literature is more respected by Unis and when you apply to unis you wont have to worry wether or not IT will bring your chances down. But ultimatley do what you enjoy!

    The first combo personally! I reckon it gives you more breadth and employers love English - as do I, I couldn't consider not doing it!
