Hi I am currently doing A levels in English Literature, English Language, French and Philosophy & Ethics. I would like to be an English teacher (GCSE). I enjoy all my A levels however I find English Language the least enjoyable due to how much emphasis is on grammar. So if I just did a degree in English Literature would that hinder my chances at all becoming a secondary school English teacher? Or would it look better to do a degree in English (Literature and Language)? For anyone who studies English Literature alone or with language too what is the degree like? What is the jump from A level to degree level like? What do the modules entail?
Many thanks to anyone who replies!

You can become an English teacher with an English Language, English Literature or English Language and Literature degree - it really makes no difference which one you choose. That said, you will be expected to teach literature so a combined degree might be your best option.The jump from A levels will obviously be substantial. All universities have detailed lists of modules and what they cover, these can usually be found on their English Department websites.
