    I'm going DMU to do Forensic computing and I got D in my English GCSE, also i have a equivalent C in Adult literacy... i got more then 280 UCAS points .. so i re-done my English GCSE and i have a feeling that i'm gonna fail again .. i just wanted to know would they accept the equivalent or not? Kind of scared that i'm not gonna get in.

    Tbh, if you've been getting on fine with your A levels then they'll probably not mind about that one GCSE? I mean, it's obvious that to get through A levels you need a good standard of English anyways.
    Why don't you call their admissions up, though?

    If you're doing higher I can certainly say you will get your grade C as it's easier to get a grade C in the higher than the foundation! :yep:

    So don't worry and relax!

    I'm sure getting like a 7 in IELTS is equivalent to like a B at GCSE.
