    To be honest I'm excellent at both but I was wondering if it would be better to focus on only one. So either Language or Literature or both at A-Level.
    Thoughts?

    I did both English Language & English Literature as separate A-Levels as I seemed to excel in English at both GCSE & A-Level. While I feel I did very well in both and found both courses enjoyable. The amount of essay writing and lesson time spent solely in English was quite annoying at times, especially during exam season when everything was just exam practice. But non the less, both were good courses (I did AQA) and I'm glad I took them both. I'd honestly say if you love English and have an idea of a career/degree based off English I'd say go for both if you can stomach the workload. I'm sure the combined course is good though.
