GCSE English Language 1


A  ‘C’ grade is the minimum requirement for university entrance and for entry to many careers, but it appears that your grade in this exam may reveal even more about your chances later in life and seriously influence them.

A parent told me this week that apparently research has shown that grades at English Language GCSE are indicative of later success in many other subject areas. Teachers often use those grades to help predict AS and A2 grades in other subjects. Those predicted grades in turn influence how well you do  when applying for university.  The grades are considered a reliable pointer towards success in acquiring good communication skills – something that is vital in numerous disciplines.

All the more reason to give this subject maximum effort now, so the lack of a good grade doesn’t hold you back later on.
