    Hi I got a conditional offer from Swansea Trinity St David's I have applied for the STEM course and I have received my offer and they want a grade C in order for me to go on the course I did business in college and I got the grades and I passed the business course. I was wondering what will happen if I don't pass my maths and I get a grade D. this is the information from Swansea GCSE Maths at grade C or above is also required. Our offers are not solely based on academic results. We take your skills, achievements and life experience into consideration. In such cases, they must provide evidence of capacity to pursue the course successfully. We like to give such applicants every opportunity to show that they have the motivation and ability to succeed in their chosen programme.

    I have the same problem. I did an access course and passed it with full distincions, but I had to do my GCSE english and maths along side it. The uni I've applied for ( Leicester ) required 3 distincions from the access, which I have achieved, and also grade C minimum of GCSE English and Maths. I've talked to them about it but they've said wait until I get my results, tottally confused at where I stand

    GCSE Grades are normally definite, so if you don't get it you won't get in, so look at other options for Clearing just in case.

    Why did you pick them as an insurance if you don't like them?, but ask them NOW if you don't want to go to them, so they can release you into clearing ( if you miss the GCSE conditions). That is an alarmingly high cost for GCSE maths and Science, just do them as a private candidate ( my entire 9 GCSE exam fees were £450!!).

    No, all self-funded at usual time, but if you've already got the resources, why pay twice?. I'm not sure on private candidate stuff though.:sorry:

    Look, or just buy the textbooks, but as I've said, I'm unsure on this stuff, so I'll leave this now.

    Hi HussAli - it's definitely worth checking with Swansea after your results come out to see if they are happy for you to study for your GCSE while you're on your course there. If you don't get the grade you need but let them know you're happy to resit, and that you're actively working on doing so, it's all good information for them to have.

    You might be able to get funding from your local authority, or the uni may be able to advise on where else you can get funding from - if you did want to take a course, you would need to pay for that and the exams separately. If you do need to resit and want to work through a GCSE Maths course for a better grade, we are offering the new 9-1 Edexcel specification for GCSE Maths with first exams in summer 2018; I'd advise waiting until you know how you've done on results day, but after that please do get in touch if we can help!

    Thanks for the advice I also have an insurance choice with USW BUT I don't want to go to that uni as I didn't like it and plus the staff weren't that helpful. I emailed Swansea to one of the lectures and they haven't got back to me yet as I think the uni is shut through the summer.

    University staff don't get the summers off. Individuals might take their annual leave during the summer but they should have an out of office message directing you to someone else if that's the case.

    Okay thanks for your help as I mailed the admissions and one of the course leader they haven't got back to me.
