I know you need Cs in maths and English language to get into uni, but apparently from 2008 unis will start asking that student need at least a C grade in science, is this the case?
My head of 6th form said, but other people have told me different..I might just contact some random uni and ask...
Yeah, well Cs in english lang and maths yeah, but i dont understand why they require a C in science for GCSE either..
A lot of universities don't care less about your GCSEs, its your A levels they are interested in.
A lot of unis won't ask for a C in Maths unless you're applying for a science course (or quantitative social science). Maybe that will change... Who knows...
Good uni's will take into account on GCSEs, but they would concentrate on A-levels more. If you have medicore GCSE grades and good A-levels grades, you will still get offers.
Thats what i though, but apparently with most if not all unis will say you cant apply for any course until you get a C, i mean i'll get a C in maths, but i hate science, and i resent revising for it, i dont do much, and if i dont get CC in double science and cant go to uni i'll be p****d off
Most uni's want at least a grade C in English for any course, Maths for anything other than arts I imagine. The C Grade in Science is only if you want to teach, you must have basic skills in English, Maths and Science and that counds as a grade C or above (Even thought you have to do tests in them for your QTS anyway). It something like those born after 1980 (or some other year) must have Grade C Science to do a teaching degree or PGCE.
