If it's part of your offer, you'll need the C!

When I was doing my UCAS application, I found that basically every university requires grade C or above in GCSE maths before an offer can be made. Just check the entry requirements on the particular university's website, it should clearly state what they expect prospective students to offer in terms of GCSE maths and English grades.

well if you are at Uni then what's the point of doing it, they've already accepted you.

You do the resit now, if you get the C, you get in, if you don't, well you probably won't get in, but it's not the end of the world, you'd need to heavily compensate in exceptional A Level grades and a very good personal statement.

If you have an unconditional it doesn't really matter but if you have been given a conditional offer as you have stated then unfortunately that just depends on your university. Just ring them up on results day and let them know your grade and ask them if they can accept you.

I haven't got my C in maths and I had offers off every university i applied for. Is there anyway you can resit the exam? I'm in the same situation as you, I'm trying to resit somehow again! Try emailing the university and ask them what you could. What course are you taking in university?

They probably made you an offer on the grounds that you are resitting and will obtain the C.

I would think that the university would not be pleased if you do not have a grade C in maths by the time you reach them. Technically, they could withdraw their offer as they said they wanted it on the site?

I'm not certain here but you can withdraw your UCAS application at any time, therefore they could probably do the same to you.

There are many videos on places like YouTube which can help you with your maths, I went from like D grade standard to scraping an A in the space of about 2 months thanks to the Internet, and then getting the best AS level maths result in my year group - again, thanks to the Internet.

Foundation GCSE maths is one of those things you should just be able to train into yourself through hard work and doing the papers. I understand that different people work/learn at different paces but put the work in and you'll succeed.

Best of luck. Don't let this hold you back, you'll be surprised how it might come back and bite you on the a** later on. Get that C, you can do it.

Then again, there are universities which just see students as little pockets of nine grand so you might actually get away with it in some cases.

I'm studying law too! Luckily maths isn't needed for Aberystwyth so it took pressure off the fact I didn't get my C. If it states on there that you need your C, but you said in your UCAS application you haven't got a C but they've given you an offer, im sure you'll get in just fine?

If they have the aforementioned attitude of them just wanting your money -- then I wouldn't contact them.

If they don't have that attitude -- then I still wouldn't contact them.

You could get away with it, they might be willing to "accidentally" fail to detect that you missed your C again and just let you in anyway. Its their decision who they let in at the end of the day.

Contacting them will only draw attention to the fact that you don't have a C. If you are going to contact them to discuss it, don't give them your personal information.
