    If it was a highish C then yes especially if you want to do it for a-level

    I don't know your school's policy on picking A levels, but we had to get at least a B in the subject we wanted to take. Even then they weren't keen. If you're planning on taking this at A level, you need to be doing the higher paper, otherwise I doubt you'll cope with A level. Just study hard and go for the higher paper. After all, you need fewer marks for a C on the higher paper than the foundation paper anyway.

    If the Foundation paper is the only way you can manage to get a C in English Literature GCSE I don't recommend you do it at A-Level, it'll be way too hard for you to cope. Besides, most colleges require an B or above.

    Have you tried higher past papers? Do one and get someone/your teacher/yourself to mark it. If you get a C or above I recommend you do higher as then you may get a chance to get a better grade like B out of luck. If you're still finding it difficult and getting D and E grades then you might be better off doing foundation.
