    Maybe. It depends which uni and which course. Unis list their gcse requirements on their websites under entry requirements for each course. The C in English may cause more problems than your maths grade.

    You will have to do some research before wasting a slot when it comes to the time you have to apply.

    Good luck

    Check what they require in English, if they require a higher grade then yes

    You need to check out the websites of the unis you are interested in - find the course and check out the entry requirements. Each will be different.

    I had a friend who was rejected from Manchester (this was 2 years ago mind you) as she only had a C in maths and not the B they required.

    Just had a nosey on Manchester's website - mechanical engineering states C grades in gcse English and maths - but AAB in A levels (including maths and physics) - didn't check out any other engineering options
