    Hey

    At the moment for most pieces of coursework for aqa english language I have about half the marks or more, which my teacher has said overall is a C. I also got a C for the english language exam. Also I got another C for iGCSE English language. I suck at creative writing and presentations/roleplays etc

    My english literature is much better, I got a B for the poetry exam and an A* for the coursework, with one exam to go and probably a retake of the poetry. I'm predicted an A.

    I was wondering, which is more important and which is considered by colleges and sixth forms because I will boost my english language coursework by a few marks if needed. Thanks

    Literature isn't that important. Its great to have a high grade, of course, especially if you wish to pursue it.

    But employers ask for a C in English Language and Maths. Improve your language and try to get it up.

    I'm not interested in Language at all though, Literature is much better.
