Firstly, are you completing the GCSE because you are in the school system?

Or are you trying to get your English GCSE for the purposes of higher education or work?

For university level study usually you are expected to have GCSE English language at a pass if you studied in a UK education system, and IELTS if you are not a native English speaker and have studied for less than a certain number of years in an education system with English as the language of instruction, as I understand.

In terms of work, I'm not too sure. Many employers require a pass in GCSE English language, but IELTS or similar may be sufficient to meet their English language requirements. You would really need to look at individual job listings and/or contact potential employers for that.

I would suggest in the first instance you discuss with your GCSE English teacher why you are struggling and try and pinpoint how you can improve.
