But why would you do L&L if you don't like English per se? I would recommend taking B HL, since L&L consist of lots of analysis which can easily become boring, annoying and essentially hard if you don't like what you're doing.

I personally think that Eng Lang&Lit is decent, although it's difficult to answer that properly for you, given that everyone interprets the meaning of the word 'decent' differently. To answer your second query regarding whether universities respect it, it all depends on which university you want to go to/the countries you're interested in going to, as well as what courses/degrees you're thinking of studying after the IB.

 

Every university is different and has different criteria for entrance. For example, most Australian universities really don't care what subjects you do, and are only interested in your final IB score. However, from what I know, American universities, for example, tend to have more strict criteria about required subjects for certain courses that you might want to do.
