    I got a grade D in AQA GCSE ENGLISH LANGUAGE FOUNDATION.

    My UMS mark was 179. For a grade C you needed 180 UMS.

    Please advise.

    You may be able to resit this at a further education institute, depending what your plans after GCSEs are. This is something you would need to discuss with them to find out whether they are able to offer this.*

    As far as I know, most universities/employers expect at least a C in English Language GCSE. If you want to keep as many options open to you as possible, your best bet would probably be to retake. However, since you were only 1 UMS off a C, it might be worth getting your paper/s remarked.

    You will need to contact your school about this but I don't see why not.
