    Hi! Looking for all the advice I can get right now! Please help!

    Here it goes...

    I have just started my final year of sixth form. I'm sitting on AAAB in my ASs in Maths, Spanish, Drama and English Literature (with the B in English).

    Of course I am over the moon with my results, but I'm just really torn whether to keep on 4 A-Levels or not! Here are the different thoughts going through my head;

    1. I enjoy all my subjects and find them interesting
    but
    2. Is the extra A-Level worth all the stress?

    3. Am I better to drop English and focus on maintaining and improving my 3 As? I think there is a possibility i could get an A*, which would be easier if I had the extra time to study what would have been dedicated to English (which is an extremely stressful and dense exam in my opinion)

    4. English Literature is a highly valued academic subject. I think my subject combination is slightly less impressive in the form of only Maths, Spanish & Drama

    5. Drop English A-Level, but repeat the AS module to get an A to bring it up to AAAa.

    6. I am so unsure about my uni courses/future career path. I don't want to limit myself to anything by dropping English.
    but

    7. I could get into a top uni with A*AA, and I would hate if dedicating so much time to English would risk bringing all my grades down in the subjects I know I could do really well in!

    As y'all can probably see, I'm really torn! I would appreciate any advice I could get at the moment. Did anyone experience anything similar? Struggled with English Lit??

    Thanks guys xx

    Yeah, I've definitely looked into that and put my name down, but they're quite difficult to get (unfortunately). At the moment, I'm gathering the most information and advice as I can from everyone xx
