    I have an offer for maths and physics MPhys at Warwick. The offer is A*AA(maths, physics and other), plus a C in GCSE English. I have achieved an A* in A-level maths, taken early and my other AS grades are AAAB(further maths, physics, biology, chemistry), but have gotten 2 Ds in GCSE english so far.
    I hope to get A*A*A*AA overall(A*s in maths, further maths and physics) and am taking STEP I-III. This would give me 280 UCAS points(A*A*) over the offer but I'm not sure if I can get the grade in English.
    I want to know how important the C in GCSE English is to the decision of whether I get a place or not. If it's less important than an extra A*A* at A-level, I should still get a place, but if a C in GCSE English is more important than A*A* at A-level I might not get a place. I'm really worried about getting rejections at the end of August, after clearing has started.

    edit: Warwick's website also mentions other English tests such as IELTS that could be taken as alternatives, but my offer doesn't include these. Would I still be able to take these instead?

    You'll need to get in contact directly with the department to find out their stance on this unfortunately :yep: . They'll be able to give you a definitive answer, and may be able to change your offer to include an English test if they're willing to accept that in place of the GCSE English.
How are you feeling about your exams?
