    Hey guys so this year I'm applying for social anthropology and my dream uni is SOAS. I'm Predicted distinction* for Business level 3 BTEC, A* for sociology and a B for religious studies. But I'm really afraid that my maths grade from GCSE will hinder my chances, since I got a D in it (I'll be retaking in june next year). Will SOAS look heavily at my grade for maths when deciding on whether they should give me a place or not? Thanks

    well, they only require ABB, so I imagine the A* and D* will overwrite any negatives with your GCSE. You should email the admissions department and ask them
