Hi there,
I am soon to be sending off for my applicaiton for Universites.
I am currently studying Btec National Certificate in Computing.
I am hoping to get an overall grade of a double M/M or D/M

Only 1 problem so far.
I want to be able to do a degree in Computer Systems Engineering in couple of good universites in London -
Kings, Westminister, Brunel, City, Queen Mary and Greenwich
Now each Uni said I need a majority of Merits and mayb some Distinctions.
Everything is looking good so far, but I have not taken a retake in English Language.
Could this effect me going to any of these univeristies.
I have a grade C in Maths which most uni's require.
Please could you clear this issue up.
Regards,
Chris

Yes it probably would adversely affect you, certainly for places like King's. Check the specific admissions requirements of each place, but I would recommend you retake and get a C before you even consider applying for uni.

is it possible to retake at home, and send off, or go to a center, or am I too late?
