    No harm in applying...what I would say though is to really emphasise and big up any relevant work experience in your personal statement to mitigate any concerns they might have about you not meeting the entry requirements.

    I only decided to apply for my course a week before the deadline last year and figured that the worst that could happen would be to lose my UCAS fee!

    Yeah in general unis are less interested in grade requirements for mature apps.
    If you think your maths is ropey you could get a gcse book and work through it.

    Hi, I am a First Year Mature Student. I am currently the Social Secretary for Exeter Mature Students Association. If you would like to talk to a current mature student about their experience please do get in touch. I can also put you in touch with the current Mature Student Reps if you would like to contact them. If any of you are coming to an Open day please let me know and I can arrange for you to meet myself or one of the Mature Student Reps. We are also on Facebook if you want to look us up, a group called Exeter Mature Students Association.
