    Hi! I'm currently studying GCSEs and just had a Sixth Form taster day; I know I want to take English literature, French and Spanish for A-level but am unsure of my 4th option. I'm deciding between English Language and RE- I've studied both at GCSE level and got A*s for both in my mock. Which is easier/better respected/more interesting?
    Thanks!

    i didn't even know there was an english lang a level lol
    which one do you enjoy more? pick that one
    i think RE might give you some more variety and for me is more interesting but then again if you really love languages (it sounds like you do) then you don't need the variety and would find it interesting

    I studied both and RE has 10x more things you have to learn for it! It was such a nuisance!

    But Language really helps you understand Language and is way more transferable at uni. You begin to recognize how sentences should be constructed. This is crucial for university essays.
