you'll have to declare the failed gcse and then declare the one you passed seperately.

Will that harm my chances or make me less desirable ?

If it's the only resit you've had to do then it won't make much of a difference

if you don't meet the gcse requirements then that univerisity is unlikely to accept you.

universities are generally very strict on gcses so a levels don't really make a difference.
