    Probably literature as its harder to prepare for i think. With language you can pre plan for the writing section. I got an A for language and B for literature but I know a couple of people who did better in literature than english

    Depends what exam board. But for me language is marginally easier as I'm with CIE.

    Lit is quite difficult, but I think it is quite easy to prepare for than language.

    Depends on the person really. But the Literature grade boundaries for AQA have been quite low recently
