    Hi
    I'm currently applying to study paramedic science at university. All the universities I have seen ask 5 GCSEs a to C grade including maths English and science.
    At School I did a level 2 extended certificate in applied science with grade pass. Is this the equivalent to a c at gcse and will universities accept this?

    You really need to ask the uni themselves to get a proper answer. I suspect it is but only they can confirm this

    on my experience you'd need to contact University you intend and ask them directly what else grades you will need to apply for particular Course. In my case I ended up taking additional GCSE Science online.
