English GCSE Resit at Central Foundation Boys School

Course description

The GCSE English course offers students another chance to obtain a GCSE grade C qualification in English that is widely required by employers and an essential part of the matriculation requirements for higher education. It is also an entry requirement for many AS-level and Level 3 vocational courses at IC6 and elsewhere.

Please note, however, that the entrance requirement at IC6 for most AS-level courses is a grade B in both GCSE English and GCSE English Literature.

Entry requirements

Grade D in GCSE English. Students without a grade D may be accommodated subject to the availability of places. Students already with a grade C will only be accepted onto the course subject to places and only for entrance to the Higher Tier Examination. This is a one year course.


Assessment is by written examination and controlled assessment.

Future opportunities

Achieving a higher grade in GCSE English opens up the number of courses available to you at A-Level.

How to apply

If you want to apply for this course, you will need to contact Central Foundation Boys School directly.
