    Only your school can answer this. Most would but it might limit your choice of subjects/qualification on offer.

    Hi,
    It depends on what the requirements set by your school are, do you know what grades your school have asked for?
    Best of luck.

    You'll probably be allowed to continue at school/college, but I would seriously recommend you to look into remarks/retakes because it could hinder your chances at getting into some universities.

    It depends on your school, different schools have different requirements. If it's like my school. you'll still be able to stay (I mean, a C is still technically a pass) but it might have an impact on what subjects you can study. For example, some subjects may need at least a B in English Language. But like I said, it's down to your school, so you probably ought to speak to your head of year about it.

    if you're not doing something that needs a B in english language, then it's fine. but actually colleges usually accept people with C's in english language. the college near me accepts people with C's to do exactly that for a level, i think.

    I got a C in Eng Lang last year it's best to ask your school. Lots of sixth forms are okay with it. However, it depends on the subjects you want to do for A-level. I chose STEM subjects and one essay-based subject (Philosophy and Ethics) so it didn't mean anything and it didn't affect me

    a majority of colleges will accept applicants with a C grade in english language, unless the course is directly related to english e.g. classical studies or english studies

    Well done on the C.

    Just ask where you're taking your A-Levels and they may very well let you

    Good luck

    It honestly depends on your course. If you're doing STEM subjects at uni you're fine, but if you're doing english, history or anything essay-based, they might view it as a red flag. I know Exeter definitely want a B or above at GCSE English Language for essay-based subjects, which is why I know some people retaking the exam.

    No I don't like essay based subjects I'm not planning to go into that field. I'm planning on doing something in science
