In my mocks, I got a strong 9 in language whereas, in literature, I barely scraped a 4.. does it matter if in the real thing I get like 7+ in lang but fail lit (since I feel like that could be very likely), like will I have to resit/will sixth forms still let me in?

Thanks

It’s all fine as long as you don’t fail language. Still, you should work to push your lit grade to at least a 5 so then you’ve got a C

It doesn't matter. My brother passed everything but English Lit because it really was not his thing. He's now at uni. No one has ever mentioned it.

Ideally you want to try and pass both, but I know when I applied for college you only need to have passed at least one. Worse comes to worse you may have to retake it in college. As long as you pass one of them you won't have to retake english at all (thats how my college does it at least). You'll still get into sixth form. You also need to have a certain grade if you want to do that subject at sixth form which I think is a grade 6 now, but theres normally some leniency anyway. Just try your best and I'm sure you'll be fine.
