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?

Yes, it is technically equivalent to a grade C at GCSE as you can see on the comparison chart below. However, different unis many have slightly different entry requirements for alternative qualifications so you will need to check with them that they will accept it. Often you can do that on the UCAS website by searching the course you are interested in and then looking on the entry requirements tab.
