I'm currently retaking GCSE English before i go to university, My teacher says i'll be getting a certificate for GCSE English but when i signed up for the retake i signed up for GCSE Language. She says that it equals GCSE English Language and literature but i am not sure if that is what the university is asking for?

The exam board is AQA, last time i did the test it was WJEC and it showed on my certificate as 2 separate grades GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature.

I think it's equivalent to English Language. Check on the website to make sure.

Both English and English Language share the same Unit 1 paper, but are two different qualifications. GCSE English is what usually happens when you don't also do English Literature. It's different because the CAs are out of 90, rather than 80 which is English Language. English is actually slightly easier, as for an A* in CAs you need 72/80 in English Language whereas you only need 75/90 for English, considerably lower.

English Literature, English Language and just English are three different, but related qualifications.
