    Hi, I have just started 6th year and thinking about applying for university this year. I was looking into social work as that is the type of career I wish to pursue. But my issue is that although I am able to get the higher entry requirments (I studied 4 highers last year and doing 4 this year), I dont have national 5 maths. It is a subject i will never come to terms with, I was only able to get nat 4 level when I was in 4th year. I was wondering if anyone knows if you can still apply for uni to do a course which asks for national 5 maths if you don't have it, providing you have all the other entry requirments and a good personal statement? My other option to overcome the maths obstacle was to do a HNC in social care and apply for university next year after college to get in with that, but I would really like to move away to uni at the same time as all my friends and take advantage of the support high school provides pupils with when applying to uni.

    Thanks for anyone that can answer this
