    I have 9 GCSE/iGCSEs in total, and 1 of these (Maths) is a C. I'm not planning on doing anything really related to maths, but I was wondering if this is going to look really bad on uni applications, and if it is, what can I do?

    So realistically I have 7A*s and 1A, not counting the C for maths.

    What should I do then? I'm taking the IB (where maths is compulsory) now and since I'm expecting to not do brilliantly at maths for IB, is it possible for me to not submit my GCSE maths grade to UCAS?

    You could but that would be a bad idea - you have to have a GCSE in maths and english to get anywhere.

    Trust me - worse have applied to Oxbridge with worse grades (like D grades) and actually got in!

    You will be fine with good A-Levels.:yep:

    What if I'm planning on doing something not very mathematical like Anthropology or International Relations? Is it not so apocalyptic then?

    I know two people who got in with an E - but these were in Art and ICT, maths might be seen as more important...

    I thought that if you had a GCSE/A Level that you had a certificate in, you HAD to put it on your UCAS?

    Especially Maths -if you don't put it on there, they'll assume you failed it and that'll make you look even worse.

    I don't get why you'd do English Lang & Lit as well as Literature as a seperate subject, I mean, I know that Lang & Lit isn't the same as doing Language and Literature seperately, but won't universities do the same thing they do with Maths and Further Maths? Just consider one of the A Levels?

    Then again, im ignoring the fact you probably enjoy the subject enough to want to do 2 A Levels in it. Im not really in a position to say anything there since im going to have 3 A Levels in Maths by the end of this year. We should make a club for people who have 6 or more A Levels.

    There will be Punch and pie.
