The universities I'm applying to require grade C or above in English Language. But I'm old, and even though the school referred to my two English exams as 'English Language' and 'English Literature' back in 2005 when I took them, my GCSE certificate actually says 'English Literature' and just 'English'. From everything I can find on the AQA website, it was just recorded as English between 2004 and 2012 and may be the same thing as English Language just recorded differently, but I'd really love if anyone knows this for certain and can put my mind at ease! (Or the opposite is fine too) Thanks! 😊

It will be okay - its such a long time ago, they will not be that nit-picky. Its English, and at the right level - even now it gets called all sorts of things.
Usually for mature applicants old GCSEs etc can be overlooked anyway - they wil be far more inteested in what you have done more recently.
