    You could always look into the possibility of access courses

    Go back and do your further education again, or look into foundation courses at university. It probably goes without saying, but remember that university-level mathematics is a lot harder than AS and A-level - so work hard!

    Perhaps apply for a foundation year, where you do one year of A level maths equivalent, then join the main course after that year. Some unis require people who have low A-levels in maths, however others don't necessarily require it, normally targeted at mature students, but I don't see any reason why they can't let you in. Provided you do well in your course, I know it's hard and it sucks b*lls. I wanted to do physics and maths but got a C at GCSE maths so I couldn't do it at A Level. I'm stuck with English and I hate it, but I'm getting okay results. I applied for a foundation year in physics and I got an unconditional. Just look at universities on the UCAS search website. But be sure that Maths is definitely what you want.

    Where do you have your unconditional offer? And what were the entry requirements? Have you done much additional maths and physics work since your GCSEs?

    Enter for A-level exams as a private candidate, there's no coursework so you can just buy the books and teach yourself. I recommend maths, further maths and one other a-level. There's loads of material online to help with maths such as ExamSolutions and people on this forum will offer help.

    If you can't pass the a-level you won't pass the degree, this would be the most direct method and would allow you to apply to good universities.
