    Last week I went for a maths and literacy exam at Southbank for radiography.
    I checked my ucas track today and I found out that I failed my math test but passed my literacy test.

    I'm really sad because it was the only university near my home and the only one I could go to.

    I'm a carer for my mum so I can't leave London



    I don't know what to do please help?

    Btw I'm 23, a mature learner. So yeah I haven't done maths in like 7 years.


    I feel so depressed. 😔
    I was thinking about calling them up. Bad idea?

    I m really sorry but healthcare courses are generally strict on all of their requirements so you couldn't do anything to change their minds. Are you able to look into improving your maths somehow? There are foundation years( they re rare) but it's the only back up option I can think of.
