Seriously?! I would have thought English Lit would be far harder than French.. I guess it changes from person to person.

What's that thing in your signature?

I mean I got an A in Lit with 100% on one of the papers whereas a C in french (aiming for an A in college :rolleyes: ), but I didn't really take it seriously because I'm repeating it.. hmmm...

Don't some people say A-Levels are easier in terms of work-load, but harder in terms of content? So if you can get your head around the content for harder subjects like History/Economics, it won't be much work? Or is this rumour untrue?

Actually I found the workload was alright although it may vary from subject to subject. The content on English Literature AS level I found very very similar to GCSE (just a bit more sophisticated). I think exam-style and technique is the thing to concentrate on because it changes quite a bit sometimes.
