    So I am currently in Year 12, studying Maths, History, Economics and Politics.
    The A-level I am most strongly regretting is Maths, I just don't like it at all and it was a waste of an option for me; I will be dropping it. The reason I chose it was because I found it generally easy at GCSE.

    If I were to go back I would have picked English Literature, which I feel very passionate about and miss studying. It is of deep regret that I didn't pick it because there is no straightforward option from here.

    Thus we have arrived at my question...
    What are my options to be able to study English Literature next year?*

    *Exclude retaking the year. There are a few reasons why, I go to a well established sixth-form so I wouldn't want to study in a college and I enjoy my other subjects and have no intention of repeating them again.

    Why do you want to study English Literature? What degree do you want to do?

    I wish I had chosen Maths instead of English Literature

    Ironically , I regret English Literature the most because you simply cannot improve without having a good teacher to mark your essays and there are A LOT , with maths you can improve by youself and you see wrong from right . That's just my opinion but I wish I did history instead
