Even if you can somehow 'get out' of retaking English Language, you shouldn't. It's very important that you have at least a grade 4 - not just for the next couple of years but also your employment prospects in the long term.

Sorry to hear that. It's unlikely that you won't have to retake it though. Technically you haven't passed. Especially if you want to go to university they may stipulate a 5 in English language or something like that.

You can try getting a remark? But honestly, I think the best thing you can do is resit it - you'll know where to improve next time.

It is inadvisable to suggest against resitting in cases such as these. English and Maths are the two subjects you absolutely need in everyday life because it is a fundamental requirement to do basic maths and to write a eloquent enough sentence to understand somebody (well, maybe not eloquent but certainly to a minimum standard).

Your grades will reflect this and, sorry to say, your employer will take what your certificate says over your word any day, as will any future colleges/universities.

Depending on how close you were to grade 4, it MAY be worth requesting a remark. If it is too far off, I'm afraid to say a retake is advised in this case.
