Is it possible to get into Uni with no Maths GCSE? Or is it possible to get into uni with about 4/5 GCSE's including maths and English, and of course your a-levels or btec level 3.

Many universities insist on maths gcse but getting in with 5 including maths and english is doable.

Very possible.

You haven't explained why you only have 5 GCSEs (mature student? illness?) but most Unis will only want GCSE English and/or and Maths.

For Bristol most Social Science courses only want GCSE Maths - Bristol (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/spais/study/undergraduate/) and
Leicester (https://le.ac.uk/politics-and-social-sciences) doesnt mention GCSEs at all.
Or you could have a look at a Social Science Foundation course where they only want C grades (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/underg...n-year-ba/2017)

I haven't got many GCSE because I f*cked up in secondary school, what I mean is that I've always messed around, got in trouble etc. Hence why I've only managed to come out with about 3 gcse's grades from A-C, English Language at grade C and Maths at a D(currently retaking it again).

I am finishing off level 3 btec in public services and looking to getting DMM or possibly DDM overall. Previously students who didn't get both maths and English has to do a foundation year, but I don't really want to do that.

Thank you!
