I'm currently studying English Literature, English Language and Film Studies at A Level. I want to study English at university and at the moment I'm most interested in Edinburgh, Liverpool and King's College London. I believe I can get A*AA - more than enough for English at each of these, and each of them only say they require English Literature. I don't know if it matters but I got full marks in all English at GCSE - I'm hoping it'll be evident that it's my forte. Is it true that universities discriminate against non-facilitating subjects or is it scaremongering? Do I have a chance? Forgot to mention, I will possibly doing an EPQ next year in my second year of A Levels.

Always read entrance requirements. They are all different.
Two facilitating should be fine, even Oxbridge are ok with that. If in doubt then contact them, but it should be fine. Even better if you do a decent epq, but not needed. Need to get the grades.

*Just seen it said and film studies and below only mentions English.
