y other options so far are biology and chemistry and I’m stuck on deciding whether to pick English Literature or Economics. I’ve studied both at gcse I got an A* for English Literature but only a B for Economics.I was working at an A in econ throughout the 2 years but didn’t prioritise revision for it over my core subjects and unfortunately ended up with a grade I wasn’t pleased with .However I REALLY enjoy learning about the subject and motivation wouldn’t be an issue if it were to get hard at a level.On the other hand English lit I don’t enjoy as much at economics but I don’t find it boring. I’m also slightly put off by the fact that many people have told me english is Very time consuming which may be a problem considering I’m already choosing to difficult subjects .
I need advice ASAP as I have basically a week to make my mind up .It would be great to hear from someone who has studied similar a levels to this .btw I don’t know what I want to do for uni so I’m trying to keep my options open.
Please and thank you🙂
