    Psychology, Biology (I'm more excited about them rhyming -.-), History and English Language (or should I do English Literature? I enjoy them both but I'm not sure if I'll be able to handle the workload)

    I know I should do what I feel is best but having other opinions would be helpful (~: I have no idea what I want to do in the future. I don't even know what I want to do right now -.-

    Thanks in advance (~:

    I do English Literature and it definitely is a lot of work and you've got to be adapted to living, breathing and quoting from the book without it in the exam! I've read a lot of interesting texts and I thoroughly enjoy it but it's really stressful, but I think you could easily hack it if you manage your time well and ask for help/clarification the second you don't understand something. The only thing I dislike about English Lit is that there's no set structure for the essays, you have to develop your own articulate way of writing and making sure that you cover all the AOs in the exam.

    If there's anything else you'd like to ask regarding A level English Literature, just quote me by clicking thebutton and I'll try to help you out as soon as possible.

    Literature since it's more respected by unis. And just something to think about since you mentioned workload. You're doing 3 essay subjects, which can be a lot of work. (I know people doing 4!)
