    If I haven't taken english lit at a level, am I at a disadvantage for competing for places at top unis?
    I know that Edinburgh's law school require english lit at A level, so I'm worried I'm not competitive enough.

    That should be fine as you still have an essay based facilitating subject (history).

    That is unusual from Edinburgh, I know at Oxbridge they generally just say "an essay subject" and aren't so specific as to say just English Lit.
