    Hey Everyone

    So during my time at secondary school I was able to achieve 'some' of the grades needed for my BTEC Applied Science Level 3 Course. I was able to Pass GCSE Triple Science at Grades C's. However my predicted grade for English was A and my predicted grade for Maths was a C. I was unable to achieve both of these GCSE's and failed Maths and English with Grade D's.
    I was able to progress onto my College course as long as I retake Maths and English. Last year I finished my maths GCSE and unfortunately I was 2 marks away from achieving a Grade C. This year I am currently studying my BTEC Level 3 course from which I need MMM to progress further into education and a grade C in Maths and English.
    I guess i am just worried about what will happen if I do not get the Maths and English grades that I need. Anyone else in the same position or could help me with some advice?

    Sorry to hear that you're in this position. Unfortunately all, if not, most, universities require GCSE English and Maths to a grade C at a minimum. You have to pass. There is no other option.
