    I would recommend that you just do English Literature at A level if you have the choice. The reason being that (be it right or wrong) a lot of Universities see English Language as a less desirable or "softer" A Level.

    I would say that English Literature would be ideal to choose as part of your A levels. I'm saying this because, as far as I'm concerned, the most popular Russell universities will take on board this particular subject, and other subjects such as Maths and Sciences too. You will not only be satisfied with A level English Literature, but however it can actually get you into top universities, though that will determine whether you can achieve AAB or AAA in A level English Literature.
