Why is it worth studying A-Level English literature?

English is the foundation for well-developed written and verbal skills. It enhances your ability to think and formulate analytical responses and to develop thoughts advantageously. Being able to make connections between texts and themes also develops your ability to think elaborately, and trains your mind to identify patterns and interpret information.

This field also allows you to enhance your planning and research skills, and increase general knowledge on other subjects like history, culture, philosophy and even human behaviour.
