Hi!
I'm starting sixth form next year, and my school doesn't offer the creative writing AS level. However, they would be willing to enter me for it and have an English teacher moderate my coursework and stuff, so my question is - how hard is it as an AS Level? I know it's 60% coursework and 40% one 2 hour exam (part of the reason why I'm so interested in taking it, actually), and it looks like it'd be a lot of fun...

I did creative writing as an AS level this year, alongside my GCSEs. It's not hard at all. I went to a lesson a week for a 'workshop', and I managed to scrape together B/C level coursework with only a few days extremely hard work.
However, if you do spend lots of time on this A level, its very possible to get great results, especially if you're passionate about writing

Thank you so much! I'd like to think that I'm passionate about writing (well, at least short pieces), so that's really nice to hear!
