i just finished wjec english lit today!
it was by far my favourite subject, but it had been a favourite at gcse too.
Don't go into it assuming it's an easy course, lots of people in my year did and after the first term they were completely overwhelmed and lost. BUT those of us that picked it because we were into english lit/literary history and were willing to cry over a poem from 30 years ago had an absolute blast. I think WJEC is by far one of the kinder exam boards (last year's grade boundaries on paper 3 were 53% for an A*!!) and the papers are really nicely split. In terms of actual exam content, My school did:
-Christina Rossetti for the pre-1900 section of the poetry paper,
-Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes for the post-1900 section,
-Hamlet for the Shakespeare section of the drama paper,
-A Streetcar Named Desire and The Duchess of Malfi for the comparative section.
I personally found the pre-1900 poetry and comparative drama sections the hardest, but that's because the subjects and themes were explored in a way i really really struggled to understand ("Rossetti wasn't a feminist. She was a feminist, but she wasnt." -an actual note from my notebook. ???)
In terms of coursework, my class had to compare one post-2000 book (of our choice) to The Great Gatsby, but the other class had to compare their post-2000 novel to A Handmaid's Tale. I particularly struggled with the coursework because I picked a book myself instead of one of the books that my teachers recommended (and i picked a book solely based on the fact it was set in a similar period, which is something my teacher told us NOT to do.) They gave us about 5(?) months to complete the coursework, which had a word count of about 2500-3000 words. Personally i tended to struggle with coursework because i am HORRID at planning ahead, (but it turns out if you're good at working under timed conditions, you can just treat it like an exam and bang out 1500 words in a single day and still get a really high mark for it lol - that being said probably don't do this.)
generally it's a really nice middle a-level, as it balances academics (being right about something) with free thinking (spinning absolute lies). My other two were History and Drama, and i really liked how it gave a different insight into both subjects.
Hope this helped! :^)
