I mean generally and not just for some English courses
if so, then do you think taking Eng Lit would help improving essay writing skills?

Depends on the course. If you’re doing maths then you won’t be writing essays lol

Psychology would be a lot of essay writing. Medicine a reasonable amount. You don’t need to study English to write an essay though, it’s not like you’re writing the next Shakespearean play, it’s a completely different style

An EPQ would be more useful preparation than doing EngLit unless you actually enjoy doing EngLit.

As this user said. An EPQ would help you zone in on your essay writing skills more than EngLit, if that's your only reason for wanting to take the subject.

As usual, Doonesbury is right. I did an essay subject (MML) and an EPQ is the most useful subject I took at sixth form - more so than the actual languages!
