    Soo i've picked up my gcse english result today and realised ive achieved a grade D (and i was in tears), despite that ive finished my btec level 3 now. My uni place is confirmed now so my gcse english wont really affect me in terms of studying in uni, but how important is it when it comes to applying jobs for electronic engineering after i have graduated? I mean it is important to get that C, but you cant really rely on an electronic engineer by looking at his gcse english right? as engineering dont really contain much english skills (im hoping) 😁😁

    I highly recommend redoing it to get that C, because pretty much most of the decent uni's ask for a C or above. Some unis may not need a C in English.
