    I didn't have GCSE English at the time of my application and so I've planned to sit the exam this summer. My offers have thus come with the condition that I should achieve a C in English. Will this be part of my adjustment criteria?

    For example, if I should only achieve AAA and a C in English I would not be eligible for adjustment since this is my firm offer. If however I was to gain an B or A in GCSE English along with AAA would this make me eligible for adjustment?

    as there are some universities that specifically ask for a grade of B or above for some of their subjects i think you would be able to apply to those places through adjustment

    Good luck

    Whether or not universities accept a specific grade in GCSE English wasn't what I was asking. I was asking if the GCSE requirement in my offer is considered as part of the adjustment criteria. Thanks for contributing nonetheless.

    sorry i re-read my post and it does sound confusing

    what i meant was the university can also have specific requirements for GCSE so if you applied to places that had a grade C requirement for GCSE and you achieved a grade B, you could then use adjustment to apply to a different place.

    so in short yes you could use adjustment if you got a higher GCSE grade than you were predicted

    I figured it would be alright but wasn't sure, so yeah...hopefully you are right! Getting higher than a C in English should be much easier than getting an A*. :^_^:
