Hi everyone
I am self-studying A-level English and am wondering if any one can advise about which exam board to go with? I am tempted to go with CIE but they seem to have two different choices "English language" or "English literature". Are both of these required to have an A-level in English? I assume not, but it seems strange to have two separate ones for English.
Can someone help me understand this better?
Thanks!

English Literature and English Language are entirely different A Levels. There are some exam boards which let you combine the two as one A Level, however. You may choose to do this or you could even study for 2 English a levels (like me) in Lang and Lit as separate qualifications

Thank you! What are the challenges for a non-native speaker in doing either of these do you reckon? My bf is German, but fluent in English. He will be sitting the A levels too. I already have a degree but he doesn't have a high school diploma yet (only GCSEs). Which would you advise to go for? We need an A to get into our first choice of university.
