Hello, so my current situation is that i am in my second year in college studying BTEC Extended Diploma Medical Science and I am 18 years old, turning 19 in August. I did a year of AS levels and did not do well, only had a grade C in Biology and B in Psychology. I want to go to a good uni in London or somewhere close to London and study medical/biology or chemistry based course and my predicted grades are DDD (but im aiming for D*D*D*) and i have achieved a D in the first year, however I did not have great GCSE results from June 2014.
English literature- C
English language- C
Biology - B
I am also taking a gap year and applying to uni this September after i have my results for 2nd year, do you think it would be worth to retake english language to a higher grade as most unis require at least a grade B in english? and any other GCSE or A level? Also heard this June is the last chance to retake GCSE/A level so i am considering taking it in June.
Thank you for your time! I really need advice

I would say that if you think you can do it, and it won't take away a lot of your time, it is worth retaking english language and perhaps even maths to get a B/A. As you say a lot of unis do require a B or A in English Language and Maths
