    Virtually all universities I've looked at anyway have C in GCSE English as a minimum requirement. And thats not just the top universities.

    Yes. A C grade in GCSE English is a standard entry requirement for most unis. Why put yourself needlessly out of the running for a course you really want to do? Retake that GCSE, no matter how much it bores you. Being able to write sensible English is a core skill whatever you are doing.
