    I think it would be best if you resit that C in order to get an A (be more ambitious ).

    Universities do look for students with a B or above in GCSE for Mathematics. However what matters most is your A Levels, some universities do ask for an A Level in Mathematics – you'd have to look into which university you are interested in for that. Other than that, even if some universities do not ask for it I would recommend you do resit it for your own benefit, as Economics does involve a lot of Mathematics (mostly financial mathematics).

    If you want any help with your revision for your Mathematics GCSE here are a few tips:
    • Work through the ExamSolutions videos if you ever feel you feel like you are stuck on any section
    • Feel free to post in the TSR GCSE Maths Forum if you are unsure about something (make sure provide the question and what you have already done)
    • Do every single past paper
    • Mark your papers and see where you have gone wrong
    • Look to do IGCSE papers once you have done all of the GCSE ones
    I hope this helps.
