    English Literature isn't too hard if you're creative, and once you've got your head around the context, autobiographies, literary theories, terminology and bits of general history. This isn't much to be honest. The subject is definitely interesting and fun to do :-) I did AQA English Lit AS last year (dropped from the college in the mid-year due to changing cities, long story short I had a six-months-long break from education) and I loved it. I'm starting sixth form in September and will be doing OCR AS specification too! ^^ Do you know what texts you'll be doing? At my school, we'll be covering "The Tempest" by Shakespeare, "A Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams, "1984" by George Orwell, and Christina Rosetti's poetry. :3
