What is A level English Literature, Maths, Further Maths and Economics at A-level

    • Thread Starter

    Hello! I've just started Year 12 and I'm doing all four of those subjects (English lit, maths, further maths and economics) and I'm just wondering how people have gotten on with this combination in the past. How difficult is it to balance maths and English lit since the nature of the work for these two subjects are so different? Obviously it's quite rare for people to do both further maths and English so have I made a mistake in taking on both subjects? Thanks!

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    It's pretty good that you're getting a range of subjects. Obviously the English literature doesn't link in quite as tightly, but you are developing critical thinking, analysis, and essay-writing skills in a different context, which can only be rewarding.

    You can always drop the literature at the end of Year 12 if you don't think it will be as relevant if you are applying to university, but see how it goes.
