    All uni courses have some sort of gcse requirement, for courses like chemistry,history and all that does the uni just check if your gcses have met the requirement and that's it? or is it something else.

    Honestly, the brutal truth is that GCSEs are not that significant. Whilst it is extremely important to get your C in maths in english language, a uni definitely will be looking at your A-level results more than anything. I know that some uni's have other gcse requirements e.g. B in maths or B in Physics ect, but apart from those requirements, you'll be fine. I know that a lot of good uni's have really low gcse requirements, but extremely high A-level requirements.
