Today, my English Lit teacher (also my Drama teacher) took me aside and asked me if I would like to be submitted for the second year of English Literature this year - meaning, halfway through this first year of it, I would also catch up with coursework and exam prep I would be doing this time next year and do all the work and exams for the second year of study this year too, with students in the year above.
Ordinarily, I would run a mile from extra work, but after my teacher's assurance that I already have the abilities needed in writing and analysis I've pretty much decided that unless the reading list is completely terrible I am going to go ahead with it. I have already completed all but one of the coursework essays needed for the first year to A grades early and the exams aren't horribly difficult. All I would need to do is read three more books, attend all the lessons I could, write a 3000 word essay in the next couple of months and then sit the exam in June, following my Drama performance, first year Lit and Politics exams in May. I have already finished all my coursework for Drama so there's nothing else to prepare for otherwise.
I honestly think I might be able to manage it and if I can pull it off universities will freaking love it, so I may as well go ahead and try (especially as a combined honours degree in English Lit and Drama is now becoming a serious option for me). Wish me luck, everybody!
