Should I take HL Lit or Lang Lit?


Recommended Posts

I want to apply for Law at top UK universities, which often require 776 or 777 at HL and 40+ overall. My native language is English and I'd say that I'm above average at studying pure literature.

I'm having a lot of trouble picking between the english courses. I need to get a high score (preferably a 7). I'm also taking HL History and HL economics and I'm worried that taking Lit HL might be overwhelming for me.

Do universities prefer Lit HL over Lang lit HL? I have to make the decision soon.

I don't think any university requires 777, surely not for Law, even unis such as LSE or Oxford require 766 and 666 respectively, Cambridge requires 776 and 42, though.

It's extremely hard to get a 7 at HL Lit and unis don't care at all, I know people who got into Oxford for Law with English B at HL (they're not native speakers, though), so if you want to have the highest possible grade, I'd go for English Lang&Lit.

I advise you to do English language and literature because it is easier than English Literature. 

Look at past papers to see whether you are more adapted to English LAL or literature.
