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?
