    I was predicted quite high grades for English and thought I would do moderately well as on the previous mock I received a 7 with little preparation compared to the what I did for my actual GCSE. However, on results day I received a grade 5 (1 mark off a 6) and the remark was no use. So I don't know if it would be better to retake and receive a potential grade 7+ or not as I am so gutted with the grade even though it was a pass.

    There's no real point. Just focus on your A-levels.

    That's what I was thinking, But wouldn't Uni's prefer someone with an A rather than a high C in English?

    So long as you meet their stated minimum requirements (which is usually a C), no.

    And the danger is it distracts you from your A-levels, which *are* important.
