Should I take a level English literature?Watch
I have just finished my gcses and now Im thinking about what a levels I should take (I thinking of French, maths and English literature and maybe epq) , Im considering doing history of art as a degree and it says its helpful to have an essay based subject like English literature or history, but I don't like the history course my school is doing. I feel like Id probably get a grade 6 or 7 in English literature for gcses but do you think I'd be able to get a good grade at alevels like an A because I think it would only be worth doing History of Art at a prestigious university and an A is usually what they require at least.
In my experience English Literature is a very accessible A Level that I enjoyed a lot. The risk with taking it is that the mark schemes are very subjective so your teachers could be marking you a lot higher than what you receive on results day. This is a risk with most essay based subjects though.
