    I got 3 A* from Physics and Further Maths as predicted. I have receive offers from Baths and Bristol. I am still waiting for offer from imperial and Southampton.

    The problem is all the offer required English Language grade C, whereas I still got D because I have social communication impairment and language disorder. Do anyone know if universities still offer me a place if I did not get the required grade C? If not, what can I do to help?

    Anyone know which university is better to study Maths G100?
    Imperial
    Baths
    Bristol
    Southampton

    For clearing, which university should be recommended to study Mathematics G100, especially it does not required English Language C.

    Why don't you tell your universities about the social communication impairment and language disorder?
    With 3A*s I think that they will be wrong to not accept you. Especially that they know that it's impossible to retake a whole English Language GCSE exam, 3 years later!

    As far as I'm aware, every uni has a C in English as a minimum requirement, maybe some of the lesser unis would let you off, but if you want to go to a good uni then you'd need that C. It shows them that you've got the competance to write assignments e.c.t

    Presumably his offers are conditional on the basis of him achieving a C in the GCSE he is sitting in June.

    OP if your unis say they require C at English then that's what they require. Special dispensation in terms of extra time in exams, rest breaks etc can be given when exams are taken to compensate for your circumstances but you'll still need to get the grades.

    I was born in UK. The first time on June 2008 when I did my English Language GCSE on AQA, the overall grade was C excluding "Speaking & Listening" which was grade F or G. I have opportunity to remove "Speaking & Listening" off the course in my situation, but AQA asked me to retake the exam again on May and Nov of 2009. All the result were grade D. From now on, is it too late to appeal the result on June 2008?
    Does anyone know?

    Just to be clear, do the offers that you have been given say that you must get a C in GCSE English or are you looking at the minimum course requirements? If they require a C of you, then beyond speaking to them the best you can do is try and get a C, and put down a course which does not require a C as your insurance choice.
