    I passed everything, but unfortunately got a grade C for maths.
    Aspiring to study law, and Manchester is asking for B for maths.
    Can I make up for this with my A levels?
    Or is it better to just resit maths next
    Year to fit the requirements ?

    Anyone been turned down because of their GCSEs ?

    Nope, if your A Levels are good then they can compensate for that Grade C

    Resit it, might as well. If you don't study Maths at a-level it might matter.

    yes they do matter but what you have got is totally fine. there are loads of other colleges that will accept you if you are worried. if you really want to get to that manchester one then you can re sit it but try extra hard.
    A levels are important for uni so be prepared.

    I guess that is to a certain extent as I emailed them and they recommended the resit and all applicants have to meet the entry requirements.
    Hoping for a loophole 😤
