How tough is English Literature? I am thinking of taking English Literature next September, but I fear that it may be too difficult for me to cope with. My school follows the OCR exam board and the texts studied in year 12 are 1984, A streetcar named desire and Twelfth Night. How difficult are these texts to understand and analyse? How interesting are they? Should I chose English Literature or not-would I regret taking it later on due to the workload? Do you need natural ability to do well in the exams? How many pages do you have to read each day? I think all the exams from this September are closed book, therefore I am fearing to take it. Please help.

Hey. I'm with the OCR board and I'm studying The History Boys and The Bloody Chamber & Other Stories. It was harder at first as I ended up retelling stories rather than analyse them. I prefer the former book to the latter, much better in terms of context. OCR I find is quite hard, I looked at AQA's English literature and it seemed better.
