    Hi,
    I'm at that time of the ye where I have to decided what A-levels I want to take. I know I want to take History and Sociology and I would also like to take an English subject. I want to become a teacher or go into law when I've left school but I don't know what English A-level to take do I take language or literature or both?

    For law I believe it's literature that would be the more desirable subject - it is I think one of the toughest A-levels you can take, but don't let that stop you if you're interested in it and/or law.

    I feel like when it comes to that many essay based subjects, it would be worth spending more time on 3 than less on 4.

    Hi! My advice is take Literature- I love it and want to go on to study it at university, which I never expected (I always thought I'd like History the best). This might be wrong, but it seems to me as if Literature has more snob-value for budding lawyers also, as all the lawyers that have done talks at my school took this subject. Also, I know all the English teachers in my school fight to teach Language over Literature, because solid language does become quite dry after a while, whereas Literature encompasses History and the soul and thoughts of an individual, which I think make it so much more exciting!
    Okay, I'm a geek.
    Take Lit!
