    Not necessarily, but you will be very, very limited.

    You really should retake

    Usually it's a basic matriculation requirement to at least have a grade C. You can retake in the sixth form though. Do you know that you've failed, or do you just think you have?

    I'm pretty sure a Grade C is required for the majority of universities, but I guess the lower calibre universities may not have this enforced.

    Well don't worry before you've taken it, just work hard, and get plenty advice and practice.

    Yes I agree, infact I would say that unless you have C's or above in Maths, English and Science, you shouldn't yet apply to university. i.e.) Make sure you have the C's or better, and then apply.

    if you got a C the uni may accept that, they usually say GCSE or equivelant.
