    So I picked English lit as one of my A levels and now I'm regretting it and I'm debating whether to change it to film studies or not.
    The other subjects I've picked are media studies, philosophy and Ethics, and art.

    I'm just wondering, what are people's experiences of both subjects land which would you recommend doing?

    I have experience with film studies, but none with eng lit. Film studies is really easy. But eng lit is way more respected

    Don't pick film if you've got media. Pick English Lit! I did it, doing it now at uni and I also did Phil/Ethics (hardest subject in the WORLD)!

    I haven't studied either, but I would say English Lit tends to be considered a more traditional, academic A Level - depending on what you want to do after A Levels, some universities might therefore prefer English. But I think both would go fine with your other options.
