There will be loads dependent on where you are looking to study. Take the Russell Group out and do your research working down the list of the Complete University guide English table..

Here is one to star with and the first I looked at Swansea. If you ae looking in London there is a huge gulf between top and lower universities and that is for all subjects. Swansea is asking for BBB.

A couple of others worth looking into are Cardiff, Sussex and Kent. All within 1 grade either way. I have researched this in a few minutes. There are others with AAB and ABB.

Keele are currently taking BBC, with GCSE English at C (or 4). Full details of the course are at https://www.keele.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/undergraduatecourses/englishliterature/#entry. I'm a PhD student in English Literature there and can confirm it's a lovely department so feel free to ask if you have any questions :smile:
