    I LOVE english literature!! At gcse it's great i really enjoy analysing texts but i specifically like it because i don't really have to read outside school : / i don't know what it is but i just cannot read!!! I try but i can never keep my attention focused ao i think if english literature at a level requires lots of reading outside of class work then i am not taking it on because it will be a chore, so i was just wondering if anyone does english literature at a level by CCEA OR AQA could they tell me is there much reading outside of what is done in class???? Thank youuuu 😊

    You'll be fine. Imo it's a common myth and your teachers will bang on about 'reading around your subjects' but you really don't have to. It's all about that exam an the spec, for AQA at least doesn't require outside reading. Infact, It's probably not best to do this but for AS I didn't even read any of the required books and just looked at summaries and still got a B.

    I'm doing A2 AQA English Literature right now. Honestly it depends. Most of us have had to read widely to get better marks. Only a couple of people managed to blag the test just based on quotes from class (didn't read anything fully) but if you don't like reading I wouldn't recommend it..
