    Hi! I did English Lang/Lit AQA A (A and B are rather different, so I would check your syllabus to find out which one you will be doing!)

    Honestly, I loved my course in the end. I didn't take it as seriously as I should have in the beginning so I did have a few re-sits in A2 year but other than that I found it really interesting. I recommend doing either Lang/Lit or Lit because Lang on it's own doesn't give you the opportunities the others do at Uni level (Eg with Lang/Lit and Lit you can go most English courses whilst Lang on it's own limits you to only English Language courses? If that makes sense).

    You do have to understand that English at A Level is very different from GCSE and you should look into both sides carefully as I found out that I prefer Lit to Language study quite early in my course but couldn't change over to Lit because it's a heavily subscribed class. I'm glad I stayed though because as it turns out, as much as it isn't my thing, I was actually pretty good at language analysis!

    But yeah I can't really give you anything other than that until I know what spec you are on, because like I said - they are very different!
