    Okay, so I have decided to take literature as English is one of my favourite subjects, because I excel in it... But I am worried that Lit is going to be too difficult. Can anyone tell me what you do in literature AS?

    I decided English AS because I simply feel it will be the most difficult, and really, I don't want to drop any other subjects.

    Just a side note, I made the desicion myself so I am solely responsible for this choice.

    Thanks!

    Depends how heavy your other subjects are really. I take AS english lit as well as Biology and Geography and English is probably my favourite Alevel even though I only got a B at GCSE, I got a B in my mock a few weeks ago and I haven't done much extra reading. The coursework is stressful because it's very independent but I absolutely love the course.

    I'm currently studying Jane Eyre and poetry by Emily Dickinson for the exam, and poetry by Carol Ann Duffy, A play called 'a streetcar named desire' and the handmaids tale for coursework.

    If you have any more questions, feel free to ask me!

    Thanks very much guys! When I go into 6th form, we have a period of time where you can drop a subject if you're not happy with it. If I do not like it, I may consider dropping it for either geography or Language.

    Thanks again!
