    Hi, for my Maths GCSE I got a D but for English Language, Literature and History I got a B. I am also doing History A-Level which I hope will boost me up a bit. I would really love to go to a university like Manchester and study Ancient History or History but I know they like a C in Maths, but would they overlook my D as I'm applying for a written based subject or would they outright reject me? Thanks for any help provided!

    Unfortunately many unis use Maths and English Language GCSE's as a first sort to weed out candidates. Check directly with those unis you are interested in and get any answer on email not just over the phone.
