    Should I apply to different universities or is it worth it to resit or sit an equivalent qualification e.g. CAE to achieve this grade b in english language GCSE?

    My choices are very limited without a grade B. Thanks.

    I would try to get at least 6 7 8 or 9 in the new English exam in any case as a lot of other potential courses might require at least a B.

    Well, not really. It's not impossible. The OP should just resit imo.

    Hey there, it depends on what course you're thinking of applying for, if it's not very competitive, don't bother, but if it's very competitive it might be worth it.
    Loads of good uni's only require a C in English GCSE, so you should be fine, but we need more details on your aspirations or we can't help you

    That's true .Liverpool and Sheffield and Southampton and Edinburgh do not consider resit candidates.

    Oh.
    Well in this case, OP I found this link on the GCSE requirements for each medical school

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...e-requirements

    I don't know when it was last updated, so you might have to check with the university's website

    Here are the A Level requirements (again I don't know how current it is)

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...el-requirement

    I found these pages here;
