English Literature - A LevelWatch
For the other half of English Literature, I can say that I know about 4 poems inside and out but the rest are just a blur. On the other hand, regarding the short stories, I only have general knowledge of them which I know will not suffice to guarantee a decent grade as so much more is needed to be remembered not only just the meanings and the quotes (honestly I would be surprised to achieve a pass in it AGAIN).
Now, there is this other college that I would like to apply for and attend after this upcoming summer in which I want to study different subjects as opposed to the courses that I am currently studying in the college that I am attending now. But, for English Literature A Level a minimum grade 5 (which is a B/C grade) is required and I know that I most likely won't achieve this grade tomorrow with the knowledge that I have right now so, would it be possible to sit GCSE English Literature sometime in November (gives me roughly 5 months from now until then to buckle down and study the content inside and out - and upon completion, will receive my grade in early January)?
Originally, I wanted to apply for two combinations of a bunch of A Level subjects listed below:
OPTION 1: English Language, English Literature & Psychology
OPTION 2: English Language, English Literature, History (and MAYBE Law A Level too)
(These courses aren't subject to change but the options are.)
The first term for A Levels begins on 14th September 2018 and with my resit, I will receive my result sometime early January 2019 which means that I will not be able to apply for English Literature with a reformed grade during the application process for college and if I do happen to pick up English Literature after I receive my new grade, I will miss out on 4 months of A Level content for English Literature. And, I do not want to spend another year waiting to study only ONE A Level. (Perhaps I could fast-track the subject but this will have to be discussed with the college.)
I honestly don't know what to do and I'm beginning to have really pessimistic thoughts about education which is quite demoralising to the point that I want to actually want to jump off of a cliff. I need help.
