I too got a C in GCSE English Language and had to take the IELTS test in Manchester for my crime! To add insult to injury, I have a degree from Manchester and my mother is an English teacher.
However, I particularly enjoyed the speaking section of the test!
I was rejected without interview from Liverpool 4 and 5 year courses too.
I would advise people to check out every last detail of the entry requirements. It's all about ticking all the boxes.Manchester ACCEPTED

engl grade c
yeh english language was one of those- shall we say tough ones, i mean i know the LANGUAGE, but i still managed a wonderful C at GCSE. and now its biting me in the b***. i recently emailed UCL re graduate entry into medicine. they said despite my post-MSc degree, my C at GCSE would not put me in a competitive position with the applying A-level students..... ummm i couldnt decide what to make of that?!?!

Just wondering, if you are allowed to take the IELTS if you are native british born citizens?
If that's the case I might as well do that rather than doing the GCSE... they both sound pretty silly considering we all have higher qualifications, but the IELTS sounds easier if you know what i mean
