Hey guys !
So I am getting creeped out with the fact that despite me being enthusiastic towards the English Language subject (picked it for A Levels as an option for September 2021), I’m being told that English Literature is a more respected A Level. Now I am wondering if Universities would accept the combination of both subjects or if I should pick one of them.
In Year 10 I did my English Lit GCSE and got a grade 5. Now in Year 11 I am working towards a grade 7 in English Language by the way.
Thank you

Both English literature and the combined English course are equally respected at A Level. No university currently looks more favourably on either one.

I took literature and language separately, and I found them to be really enjoyable subjects.

uni’s would accept the combination but i think you should just focus on one of them.

english literature is more respected and it’s actually a pretty good a-level (i enjoyed it)

Thank you so much! It’s the fact that I was being told that “English language is not a facilitating subject compared to English Language as it is more respected”

Facilitating subjects don't exist anymore, so that point is irrelevant.
