    Hi everyone, mature students usually retake maths and English in order to apply to university. I've looked on uni websites, and some universities require student to hold 5 GCSEs. Do these universities require 5 GCSEs from mature students as well?

    Not necessarily. If it's not clear from the website, drop them an email to get clarification.

    It depends if you have an equivalent, if so then no:

    I was told that you just need to prove you can study at A level, or equivalent, and then it's up to the professor of the course to decide if they feel you can take the pressure of the work.
