What is the main difference between gcse and a level English literature, do you do the same like comparing poems and talking about books or is it completely different and is it much harder than gcse, I want to take it, I’m hoping to get a grade 7 in gcse as I got a 6 in my mock, I just want to make sure I’m making the right decision

More texts, expected to form more involved essays and to a higher standard. Check the A level spec. Still about novels, plays and poetry.

will depend on the exam board but i'm doing aqa b and there's no comparing poems here.
i got an 8 at gcse but i do find the subject difficult you need to put a lot of work in to develop a good essay technique especially as the time constraints can be quite demanding. your analysis needs to be more considered because your knowledge of the overall texts is expected to be better.
