    You don't need English at all, so yes

    EDIT: Sorry, I've just realised you're probably studying for GCSEs
    You will need them separately, I'd imagine (however it may be best to ask the universities - some may be less strict than others and let you get away with it).
    If a University has on its website something like "A in English Language" as a requirement, you would not meet this.

    Do you mean at GCSE level or A Level??
    Because if its GCSE then you certainly need English Language (english literature isn't really looked upon)
    Remember medicine is really competitive, they usually require A* or A in English!

    Thats fine, but to be on the same side you at least need an A or possibly a B in english literature for medicine. For something like pharmacy you'd get away with a C.
