    Hi, so I was wondering whether I should apply for an English Language degree or an English Language and Linguistics degree. I'm more inclined towards the English language aspect, although I'm also interested in the linguistics side, even though I have very little experience in studying linguistics. What are the advantages and disadvantages of taking one of these degrees over the other in terms of studying at the subject at uni, job prospects and so on?

    Also, if I were to apply for an English Language and Linguistics degree, would a D in GCSE Spanish hinder my chances of getting an offer? I'm not studying Spanish at post-GCSE level, by the way.
