There is no need to be worried if you fail GCSE English more than once. Level 2 key skills communication will make up for it - it's kind of an equivalent to GCSE English. GCSE English and level 2 communications key skills are part of NQF level 2 anyway.

I saw those websites. Level two communication key skills and GCSE English are similar.

level 2 is a joke. I did Level 3 and it was much easier than GCSE English. Employers will want the real thing, GCSE or nothing. I have Level 3 english which is supposed to be the same has A level. That is frankly just an insult to A level english. Did anybody ever tell you I dispise this labour government?

I wonder how people go to university with good A-level results with GCSE English grade C and below. Some still get accepted.

It depends on circumstances and how well your personal statement is written etc. I got a place without a grade C in English.

Ok, how about the reference by the teacher, they care about that along with the personal statement eh? You are lucky that you got into university without GCSE English grade C.

Many people get into university with grade c english, for a start they could have done it at A Level. Secondly as long as they show a good level of english in everything they send to the unviersity and as long as they arent doing a course requiring a huge amount of essay writing theyll be ok.

The point is that simply looking at the exams of Key Skills and GCSE show the difference. Level 2 is just multiple choice FFS! Level 3 you have some essay stuff but nothing compared to GCSE.

I've heard Level 3 ICT compared to AS Level by my enrollment tutor at my college but she also said that it is really much easier and there is a lot less work to do. Maybe it is the same for Communication?

What's even more funny is when they say "it's worth 10 points", I was like "er, no thanks". Not that I'm ungrateful, I just wasn't going to fall for that as I'd never seen any offer like "280 points, plus Key Skills ICT".
