    as I am nearing the end of year 10 we have been told English lit is now compulsory an we HAVE to take it? why is this? the year 11s got to opt in or out, why don't I get this choice? I think learning an extra 15 poems and how to compare them should be a choice

    English Literature is a stronger qualification than English Language and because everyone does it, you could be put at a disadvantage without the GCSE :dontknow:

    surely its better having a stronger English language qualification then having both at a lower level?

    I'm in year 11 and I thought it was compulsory anyway for us???? :confused: Maybe that's just it in our school, cause they feel like it would benefit us anyway.

    Most of the things you need to do after year 11 though require getting a C or something at english. Depends what you take.
