Hey guys, I go to a private school. I do these GCSEs: Edexcel IGCSE Triple Science, Maths (Edexcel IGCSE) , Further Maths (AQA), English Lit and Lang (WJEC CBAC Eduqas), Geography (AQA), Computing (OCR) and Chinese (Edexcel IGCSE). I feel like dropping English Literature, do you think it will be advisable, Honestly, I feel really stressed and I just can't be bothered to English Lit. I am literally overworked and I have been studying consistently. I would rather have 9 9s, rather than 8 8s and 1 3. Suggestions?

I guess you would just have to speak to your school as English lit is not actually government compulsory although many schools force you to take it, I also tried to drop English lit and replace it with further maths or computer science but my school wouldn’t let me so I guess it is dependent on what your school allows, 9 GCSES is more than enough anyway

realistically only "top tier" unis actually look at your GCSE results like Oxbridge and maybe Russel Group unis. I've heard that they would rather you do that because you get an Ebacc award which is considered to be "desirable".
