    I am completeing my GCSES in May/June this year. I am aiming for a B in mathamatics but I do not thnk this wil be possible and I will end up with a C. Would tis restrict me from some university entries? For example places like Warwick and Glasgow? I am wanting to complete a Classsical Civilation and Politics degree.

    the only uni i've heard of so far that looks at your GCSEs are oxford and cambridge. GCSEs generally are used to get you to sixth form, past that, there's no use. Though some future employers might ask for your maths or english specifically and generally they do need Cs or above for eng and maths. Unis on the other hand usually look at A levels more

    The best thing to do would be to visit the university's website & look at their entry requirements for the course you're interested in. Most universities only require a grade C or above in Maths or English however this can vary depending on the university.
