    So I took my GCSEs back in 2011 (damn, that seems so long ago!), and I passed only 4 of them, two of which included Mathematics and English Language. And by pass, I mean got at least a C.

    Do you think I've still got a chance of getting into a good uni? I mean, I'm obviously not going to apply to Oxford or Cambridge! :P

    2011?! I did mine in 2006! (Old lady alert)
    As long as you have maths and English, you should be ok, I think. Depending on what course you're applying for, you may need science too! And some unis will ask for Bs in them.

    I want to study English Language, preferably at either the University of Manchester or the University of Birmingham.

    Manchester states that the minimum English GCSE requirement is a C for the course, which I have; Birmingham's website doesn't state a minimum English GCSE requirement for the course, although it does state in its general admissions entry section that every applicant should ideally have a C in GCSE English and Maths, both of which I have.

    In which case, I'd say 'go for it!' You might want to check with the unis though, just to be sure
