Some of them might accept IELTS

Just check with your chosen Uni.

If you are international and didn't sit GCSEs at all the GCSE requirement doesn't apply.

Check the course's English language requirement for internationals instead. Likely to be IELTS.

For internationals GCSE English is not required, IELTS is fine.

Exactly. The GCSE isn't *required*. It's an option.
