A 4 in English Lang is a pass tho? If u got lower than that in Lang, then you would have to retake it regardless of how well u do in a English literature I think.

A 4 is a pass, so you passed both.

For anyone who got lower then a 4 I advise you to resit, as 99% of employers now insist on at least a C/4 at maths and English language.

Yes you have to re take English Lang,

Maths and English Lang are the ones you have to pass (and if you don’t you retake)

You will need to resit language if you only got a 3
It may also be worth updating the original post to say that you got a 3 instead of a 4! :hugs:

My son got a 4 in lit and a 3 in language and he hasn't had to resit. His college accepted his lit pass. He passed subjects 8 in total but got a 3 in language which was a shame. This was June 2018

This screenshot of a flowchart suggests they will accept language or literature as a pass in English

The gov has decreed that you have to pass one of english lit or english lang, or you will have to retake english lang whilst at sixth form/college etc until you pass it or leave. So if you have passed english lit you don't have to retake the english lang.

However - employers are interested in english language (not literature) so if you have failed english lang it really is worth retaking it.
