People of TSR!
I am struggling to choose between A-level English Lit and A-level Drama; which is better as a subject, which is more worthwhile to devote 2 years of advanced study?
I have decided to do A-level French and History, which combine a mix of written prose and memory, so taking into consideration these 2 firm choices, which would balance equally as a third choice?

I'd probably do English-Lit with them ☺️ Because drama has a lot to remember and that would become really hard with history 💖 But I ain't the best at choices 🙈

Thinking of studying Languages or French with History (as a joint course) but I do enjoy Drama and English both equally

👍🏼 lol and I'm happy to help! ❤️
Yup but then drama got so much like actions and words and what part you gotta play and I would think English lit would be slightly easier 😃

I think English Literature would look better on your application, as it is generally more favourably looked upon by universities and would be more relevant to your degree choices than Drama

I'm doing History and French and doing English Lit with the two, so probably a bit biased () but I think it would be better to go with English Lit - it's a well respected, facilitating A-Level.

If you can cope with the work then English lit - it's viewed far higher in the eyes of employers and universities and would definitely aid a degree in any language or history.

English Lit is great but be wary if you do the AQA board, my school has had many bad experiences with the marking in the past.

Since you enjoy both of them then I would advise English - it will ''look better'' considering your other choices whereas drama is something you can easily do outside of education whereas English not so much

I have been thinking about keeping up drama outside-of-school for a long time so I think I will pick English lit and just do drama out of school! thanks so much for your advice !!
