    The entry requirements for a course say, "AAA at A level. Plus GCSE Maths grade A and English Language grade B."

    But I have a B in Maths and a C in English.
    Will I get accepted if I get AAA in A-levels?

    I doubt it - after all you don't meet the required grades. If they didn't matter then they wouldn't be listed.

    You could try, but regard it as a high risk choice - application numbers are down, but those GCSE requirements are there for a reason.

    My brother got in to imperial with a C in English so i wouldn't give up hope just yet. If you did get straight A's in your A levels then they may see it as you redeeming yourself.

    If they are required, you're wasting your time applying, really.

    Just retake maths and english GCSEs alongside your A-levels. If you're capable of AAA at A-level, you should be able to get AB for Maths and English GCSEs.
