    The entry requirements for the psychology with business and management course is a B in math at GCSE and I got a C in my IGCSE. The a level grades are AAA - AAB and I've been predicted AAB for my a levels. Will my IGCSE grades ruin my chances in getting an offer?

    universities can be pretty strict on gcse requirements, you need to speak to them before applying.

    Which university is it?

    It's unlikely (though not impossible) that you'll get an offer.

    Universities wouldn't specify a minimum GCSE maths grade unless it was important - they clearly feel you need that level of mathematical ability to be able to cope with the course.

    Is it possible for you to resit GCSE maths this year? The university could then decide to give you an offer conditional on you getting a B in it, and AAB in your a levels.

    I guess I'll have to message them.

    I'll have to ask, thanks and it's Sussex.
