Biology, English lit and French are all respected subjects so it doesn't matter which two you pick. I did both english lit and biology they are both good bit with biology there is a lot to learn and some of the topics are a little dull. With history and english lit you can do most art and humanities degrees and French would be more useful than biology in these areas as you could combine your studies with French too.

Adding English and French would be cool. Degrees wise i imagine stuff like politics, law, english, IR etc would be open to you.

It's okay, less than my other subjects(biology and maths) although you have to write lots of essays outside and in lessons this is pretty much the majority of work for the year, except for recapping things before the exam. Also, for my course (AQA litB) at A2 you have to learn the quotes by heart as you can't have your book in the exam, but you don't really have time to use your book anyway so it's not too bad. Hope this helped
