I'm predicted a 7 in GCSE literature but I'm not sure whether to take it for A-level. I'm thinking about a career in law so I thought it would be good for that. I spent all of years 10 and 11 hating English but fell in love with reading and writing near the end of year 11 but I don't know if that's enough. I know it will be hard and I don't know if It would just be too hard since it's not my best subject. It's either this or criminology which I think I'd be more likely to get a good grade in. I'd need good grades to do law so would it be better to get a good grade in criminology or risk struggling in literature?

Don't take it unless you specifically enjoy and want to do more literary analysis. It's not just a course in "reading and writing" and if you don't enjoy analysing a single sentence to the extent you could write paragraphs about the grammar and meaning of it, it's likely to be tedious and boring. It's also no better for law than any other A-level (essay based or not).

I would strongly suggest caution when considering criminology though. It is not an A-level - it's a WJEC certificate marketed as "equivalent" to an A-level. Quite a few unis do not agree with that and do not consider it equivalent to an A-level however.
