I'm in yr11 and going to choose my A-levels soon. My aim is to go to a top Uni, like Oxbridge, to study English Literature but I'm still unsure about which A-levels to choose.

Naturally, I'll pick English (probably lit) and I'm thinking history too but I don't know about my third one.

I think either English Language or German but I'm unsure.

German might be better respected but I'm worried that because I don't enjoy it much that the jump from GCSE to A-level will mean I don't get a good grade.

I'd be appreciative if anyone has any advice or ideas about what is better, Thanks

Neither German nor English Lang will look 'better' in your application. 100% would go for whichever you're more confident in getting the best grade at. :hat2:
