Hey everyone, I'm 16 currently taking my GCSE exams (my first one is tomorrow). Basically I just want advise on whether my options are suitable to then go onto either Law with French at degree level or English Lit at degree level.

My A level choices are psychology, French, religious studies and English lit.

Also, I would just like to ask what are the pros and cons of both of my degree-level choices? I love English lit and have never gotten anything less than an A* in it during mock exams. Which is easier? Which is more exciting? I was told that many people become depressed taking English lit because its so much reading. Please helppp.

Thank you

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

Well can I just say... I chose literature because I never put any effort in for GCSEs and I did okay. I thought it would be similar when it came to a levels. Lol much wrong. Such regret.

Put it this way, it's 3am and I'm revising for lit...

Is it a massive step up from GCSE?

Depends. If you're someone who actually studies for literature, your foundations will be much stronger which is important for AS. Though you will not be doing gcse level analysis, a good foundation helps for learning new techniques.

For someone who didn't know what a hyperbole was but still managed to bs their way through GCSE, as level literature isn't quite for them IMO.

Lower employment prospects, not as respected as law, not as interesting.
