All of the University's and courses I'm interested in, economics or business studies at York, Newcastle, Manchester and Durham require at least a B in GCSE Maths. I got a C in my GCSE Maths, which I wasn't really that bad in but I did hate and that's probably why I got such a bad grade in it, the courses I'm interested in are BA so I'm hoping they would be less mathsy?
My question is, would they forgive the low GCSE Maths for good A Level Results? And If the answer is no, what can I do about it? Any stand-alone maths courses available that would suffice?
AAB I think is required in most of what I'm looking at and I recon I can get at least AAB in Economics, Business and Sociology and C in AS Computing.
Thanks in Advance,

Since you didn't meet their GCSE requirement it's unlikely they'll accept you. You can try applying to a few of those unis but be prepared for rejections. Since they're good unis and will be competitive they're unlikely to accept any alternative qualifications, so if you really want to go there you would need to resit the GCSE.
