    If you got a B in maths then it could be worth a try.

    Totally. I think the fact that you worked hard and brought you a-level grades up will be a tick in their books. Plus I reckon the interviews matter a bit more. I actually missed my offer by a bit but still got accepted cause the interview well well.

    As long as you get a B/C in english at GCSE you'll be fine as thats the minimum required. I got ACC Health and social, psychology and biology at A level and still got in to do the Masters (not through clearing) I'd really recommend taking biology AND chemistry as its mainly based around those. They shouldn't have let me in really as its a real struggle without chemistry and a poor biology grade.
