    I have my 2 literature exams in 2 weeks but haven't done any revision for them.

    Are the literature exams really all that important though?

    From my current understanding, it is actually English Language that is important whereas literature isn't a huge deal. Am I correct in thinking this?

    Language is important to progress. Literature is more highly regarded. In many schools, including mine, you can only do literature if you're capable enough. Just revise - stop being silly. Give up time and work your backside off, then feel free to do absolutely nothing over Summer.

    Technically speaking, yeah language is the one you'd need to go into sixth forms/uni/etc. Literature is like taking an option in a way

    Well to be honest, I feel like English lit is more respected than English lang and if you do have the intentions of further studying an essay-based subject, it's in your best interest to do some revision for your exams.
    But your right, you don't need to pass English lit whereas you need a C for English lang

    yes language is what you need to prove you can survive and work in an english speaking country. Lit is like other essay subjects, like history, geography, RE.
