    I love English and i want to continue studying it as an A level but i much prefer English Language compared to literature at the moment. What is English Language like compared to English Literature if anyone is taking it? Is it hard?

    It's more of a personal issue as what's "hard" is relative. If you enjoy criticizing then pick Literature over English. If you'd rather write essays and analyse speech then pick English over Literature.

    Personally, I feel those 2 subjects are the richest in A Level.
