An A-level in an English subject is respected by many employers and universities because writing skills are strengthened by close study of other writers and by drafting and re-drafting your own work. Likewise the in-depth analysis and creativity required for your study of English are skills you can use in a wide range of HE courses and careers. English A-levels are often used by students to pursue degrees in Law, Languages, Education and Media Studies. AS/A2 Creative Writing will be particularly useful for anybody considering a career in journalism or marketing.
