Hi,
I recently got an offer from the University of Bristol for Biochemistry. I'm currently studying an Access to HE: Science (Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics) along side with resitting A-level examinations and GCSE English and Mathematics. The conditions for my offer were 30 distinctions, 12 in chemistry and 12 in another science or math and the rest at merit. I am on track for this. I only have a D in English language. However, I was wondering if I were to drop GCSE English language would effect my offer?

Check the University's grade requirements for Biochemistry and if it asks especially for English language to be a C+ or something then yes. However if you've already got an offer, I doubt it. To be sure, just check track and see what they are asking you for.

Conditions of offer

This offer is subject to you obtaining Access to HE Diploma 30 credits at Distinction, including 12 credits in Chemistry and 12 credits in one other science or Maths, and 15 credits at Merit.
This is all it says, I ask because I was telling my English teacher and he says check with them.

Could you call Bristol to ask? Most unis, particularly prestigious ones, want students to at least have a grade C in English. I wouldn't drop it because it's important for jobs and pretty much every university course.

Why are you resitting A-Levels alongside an Access course?
