From looking at recent specifications, most GCSE subjects require more than one module.

However, back in 2002, when I did my (first attempt) at my GCSEs - 2 of the GCSE grades I received were "English" and "English Literature".

HOWEVER...

I swear I only took 1 exam for English, and 1 Coursework for it too. And then there was speaking and listening too, which I got a separate grade for.

But, even from 1 exam and 1 C/W, I received 2 GCSEs.... "English" and "English Literature". Looking back on this makes me very confused. Why did I receive 2 GCSEs? Surely it should have just been the 1?!

Perhaps it was a double award, I did business and it was a double award even though I only did one exam. Don't worry about it.

Thanks. It might have been a double award. But don't you get 2 identical grades for those? I got 2 Cs, but I know people who got different grades for each one.

You probably forgot.

It's highly unlikely you didn't do the paper and coursework for Literature and just 'somehow' got a GCSE in it.

I didn't mean I only got 2 GCSEs in total (I got 11) I meant I got 2 GCSEs for English from doing only 1 English exam
