Hi I feel like I might not get into biology Alevel due to what’s happening with the education system rn, and if I end up not getting into biology Alevel, English language would be suitable for me. Has anyone chosen English Lang as an Alevel and can you please tell me a little about it? Please and thank you!

Hey! I finished my English Language A-level in 2018 with an A grade. Is there anything specific you would like to know or do you want some more general information?

I got a B at GCSE, an A at A-level and I currently do a degree in Literature and Linguistics at York
Between English Language and Literature A-level, language definitely has the bigger jump. It is much more focused on representations of language, grammar and sociolinguistic theory compared to the GCSE. This may make it sound really boring but honestly, that course is the reason that I study linguistics today. I would recommend looking at what your individual exam board offers but you usually get to cover some pretty cool topics such as child language acquisition and global Englishes (how they were founded, developed, etc.).
If you have any other questions let me know! I am more than happy to answer
