I've looked at the Russell Group guide (and most of the other very helpful links at the top of the page,) but still struggling to come to a conclusion on whether DD will restrict her university options by taking combined Engl lit and language A level rather than the single English Lit. She doesn't know for sure yet what she would like to study at university (she is, after all, only 15!) but some sort of English lit/lang based course seems likely.
Without doubt, every university accepts English Lit as a strong A level, but the combined A level doesn't appear to have universal acceptance. For example, one of the unis state that the combined subject will be considered if the school doesn't offer the single subject.
Is it really a case of looking at all the entrance requirements for possible universities and checking whether they accept the combined subject?
DD would prefer to do the combined as loves creative writing as well as the literature side of the subject, but I would hate to think that she is narrowing her options already
Any practical help from someone who has been there and done that would be extremely useful
