    It's not impossible but it's unlikely. Universities are wary of admitting students without GCSE English and Maths C grades because they know that most graduate jobs will require those grades - there's not much point in them admitting you for a degree if you're going to struggle to find work because of your GCSE grades.

    Can you resit again in May/June?

    Universities don't receive GCSE results from the exam boards. They'll only know your grades if you send them through.

    If you're resitting again and that was listed in your application then they won't reject you at this point.
