I am resitting my mathematics and computer science a levels and am predicted 2 A's, however I only got a D in English.
Would a decent grade in the welsh baccalaureate (advanced) be enough to prop up my D grade in English, or should I just apply to universities with much lower entry requirements (which will accept a D) instead?
(or just skip university entirely)

Always check with the uni concerned on their web page and by informal enquiry.

You dont say what grade, but UCAS recognise it as equivalent to an A level.

You dont say what degree but imo they will be fine. You can always try again in clearing.

Assuming this is the correct one.

yes. so many universities now adays accept the welsh bacc instead of the third (providing its irrelevant to the course) subject. Bristol, Cardiff, Swansea, Southampton, Birmingham, Exeter to name a few. You still have to declare english grade but if you get the A in WB they'll recognise that into your offer as well. Im in a similar situation, i take maths, geography and history and WB. my history grade is a C atm and my referee said to focus on wb cos i have a better chance then at achieving my offers.
be aware of unis like Bath. they accept the welsh bacc but not as a substitution. the wb in bath only helps to bring down your offer.
