If I passed gcse English language with a C and didn't pass English literature would I have to retake literature to go to sixth form. Every where I look/search comes up saying I need to pass 'English' but I do two separate exams, lit and lang so I'm really stressed out and a bit confused. I'm doing edexcel exams with coursework (2015-last year before the gcses change again)

From what I remember when I did it at my school you only had to pass lang, because for us lit wasn't compulsary but it depends what your school was like (this was a few years ago aswell) your best bet is to ask a teacher

Well when I took my exams in 2012, it was always "you need a C in English Language" - nothing to do with literature.

We have to retake at our school but they said English Language is the most important.

English language is required for sixth forms, colleges, universities and jobs.
Unless yours has a specific policy, your grade in English literature won't matter except possibly for entry into specific A level courses.
