    You could list the subjects and omit the grades, but it will probably be inferred that they were not great.

    Either way, don't lie if you are asked.

    Or depending on if you have higher qualifications (A-Levels, college or university degree), you could put "5 GCSEs including English". But as ByronicHero said, the important thing is not to lie.

    it would be a good idea to retake your maths too btw. if your other grades are ok then you could just leave out the crap ones. i got a D for gcse psychology and gcse stats but i left it out lol
