    Some unis say they like you to show an interest in literature by studying English Lit. And if you don't study that then you should be able to show a strong extra-curricular interest in literature.

    History would be a very good choice. Law's not seen as the best A-level but if you want to do it then that's fine.

    The requirements aren't too strict though as long as you're doing the language you want to study.

    You only have three AS at the moment? (Most people do four.) Maybe you could pick up AS English Lit in year 13? Then you get a taste of Literature and will have 3 A2s and 1 AS like everyone else.

    Since you want to study Literature, study A-level English Literature.

    yes i am in year 12 with three AS at the moment and thanks for the advice. i think that would be a good idea to just take english lit to A.s level because i dont want to stay in sixth form for another two years

    Take up English lit as next year so you have 4 AS like others and will show an interest in literature.
