    I'm still unsure as to whether or not I should go for english at cambridge or history. However looking on the website for english I saw that they said that you can take english literature or english combined if your college didn't offer literature. I've already taken english combined but my college does offer english lit, will Cambridge know this if I apply?

    Cambridge has a wide range of data, but idk if that would be covered. However, if it was a case of lit not being offered and you had no other choice, you would be able to write in the SAQ that you were unable to take the desired subject, as there is a section for this type of thing on there. They may well ask you, should you get an interview, why you didn't take English lit though.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
