Also UCL themselves have answered your question about GCSE requirements on their website:
"All programmes require GCSE or equivalent passes in English Language and Mathematics at grade 5 or higher. Some programmes require grades higher than 5 or additional GCSE passes in specific subjects, as outlined on individual degree pages."
Then on the BASc Arts & Sciences degree admissions webpage, it specifies the following:
"GCSEs: English Language and Mathematics at grade B or 6. For UK-based students, a grade C or 5 or equivalent in a foreign language (other than Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew or Latin) is required. UCL provides opportunities to meet the foreign language requirement following enrolment, further details at: www.ucl.ac.uk/ug-requirements."
You do not meet the requirements for that specific degree programme as it requires GCSE English Language at grade 6 or above. Generally if a university requires a GCSE subject at a particular grade, these requirements are applied fairly stringently. If you want to apply to this course I would recommend you look into retaking your GCSE English Language. Otherwise they will probably just filter you out on the basis of not meeting that requirement.
