GCSE and A level grades

What GCSE grades/ A level grades do you need for a decent english degree. Also can your A level grades makeup for your GCSE grades ie. say I got AAA in my A levels but in my GCSEs I got all 6s.
I want to be an English teacher so it’s nothing spectacular or stem type of thing. I just want to know if this this would effect my chances to go to a good type of uni :,D
It depends where you want to go, look around some websites to see grade requirements. Generally A levels can't make up for GCSEs or vice versa, but check admissions processes, usually there's minimum requirements for each that you have to meet and they may not make a difference beyond that, check with the unis you want to apply to.
