Failed English Literature GCSE will it affect me? Watch
So overall I have 6 GCSEs but I failed English lit.I don’t plan on doing it a level or anything but shall I resit it? I’m scared that this will affect me while I’m applying for jobs and when I apply for university.
Depends how did you do in language? I didnt pass literature either but I got language and had no problem with uni or work. In fact i have yet to be asked if I have a qualification in lit, but i have had several jobs where language was a requirement.
For most courses at university you need a pass in English. If you don't resit it you won't get in (to any decent ones anyway). Employers will also question why you don't have the qualification when most people have it. So yes, you definitely should resit it and it will affect you.
I’ve taken a look at a few courses at uni and all of them have required English language at grade 4 (which I have) but I haven’t seen any requirements for English lit, I was just wondering if I should retake it just in case
