    It would only be mature students generally that would be accepted without it and even then that wouldnt be everybody. You should resit.

    Generally a C minimum at GCSE in English and Maths is the pre-requisite.

    That said, it seems you're looking at a first degree? If so you might get more use out of here outside the postgraduate forum tbh.

    Resit Maths GCSE, without at least a C at GCSE Maths and English most universities will not accept you.
