    i want to do accounting and finance at universities. however, i've got grade 'd' in gcse math where universities ask for at least a grade 'c' in math. i am resitting gcse math so hopefully will get grade 'c'. i also didn't do traditional a level at sixth form. i did health and social care double award and got 2 b's and 2c's in law and business studies. i have passed adult numeracy at level 2 which i think is equivivlant to grade c at gcse.
    so intelligent people, tell me what are my chances of getting into a university without gcse math. how can i convince universities to give me a place
    very tense about it and haven't start my personal statement yet

    I don't think you are picking the correct course based on your apparent mathematical ability. Sorry if that sounds negative.

    This, accounting and finance is very maths based and without a c you will struggle.

    I hate to be cynical but, your chances are low in all honesty, especially considering the competitiveness of our current climate.
