I've applied for the PGCE course starting this year. The training provider didn't accept my English qualification(IELTS) as the English GCSE equivalency test so I have to sit the English GCSE exam and submit the grade (above C) as soon as possible.
My questions are;
1) Is it too late to sit the exam now?
2) If not, can I sit the exam without submitting the course work?
As I'm a non native English speaker, I find the whole thing (the education system in this country) really confusing.
Could you please tell me what's the best thing to do in my situation?
Any advises or suggestions would be much appreciated.

For a GCSE you would need to complete coursework. If you don't submit any coursework then you won't be able to get a good grade for the subject. If you really can't d coursework then you could take an IGCSE - the international version - but the uni may not accept this as meeting their requirements.
A different route would be to take a Level 2 course in literacy - although again you would need to check that the uni accept this. This course is done through Learn Direct centres and can be started pretty much any time of the year, so it isn't too late to complete it.
