    I'm considering doing these A Levels next year but I've read that they all require a lot of writing, has anybody else picked these subjects and do they think it would be too much work to do all 3 and still do well?

    History is probably one of the most strenuous essay-based subjects. If you're interested in the subjects, it's great, but if you wanna get good grades your essay writing skills need to be up to scratch, and the best way to do that is writing essays!

    Religious Studies, at least the exam board I was on, was also lots of essay writing. Much the same as history!

    I haven't taken English Lit but again, it's a lot of essays from what I've heard. Also a lot of reading, because the books are what you write the essays on. So you will likely be doing a lot of essay writing with those three! But then people often do have similar subjects, and if you enjoy them you won't notice so much! Also many people do 4 a-levels, so only doing three means you'll have more time than average (:
