I am currently doing IGCSEs (English as a First Language, Maths, ICT, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Business Studies) and I am not sure whether I should take English Literature. It would earn me the ICE award too.
However, it will be a lot of workload and I am not sure I'll be able to cope. I am generally an A* student. Is the extra subject and ICE award worth it? I am probably going to pursue Computer Engineering and do A Levels after this.
Thanks in advance for your replies.

Computer Engineering is a good choice and so is the Maths and triple science! Only other thing I would suggest (strongly suggest), is Further Maths.
Also, I would advise against ICT. It is in no way tied to Computer Science or Engineering, more of a learn how to use Microsoft Office kiddie subject. The current specification is very weak (unless they're changing it in time for you, please check), and a further warning; I wasn't far off a hundred percent in the theory exam, but for God knows what reason I got a C in the abundant controlled assessments (honestly don't know why; I followed the instructions well). ICT was my only B at GCSE, very glad I dumped the nightmare of a subject at A-Level.

English lit's great if you're planning to do History or another language at A level. Or basically anything that requires language/analytic/essay-writing skills. It also helps with the closer analysis in English language.
