    I plan on studying Business Management with Spanish and the A Level requirements for Kings's are AAB (I've been predicted A*AA) but they state that you need a grade B at GCSE Maths while I only got a C, would King's College consider being lenient or would it be a straight away rejection?

    Generally universities wont be lienient with gcse requirements, you need to speak to them before you apply.

    GCSE requirements are one of the things that universities are very unlikely to shift or change. I recommend contacting the unis you are thinking of applying to and asking them.

    If you had subsequently attained A or A* in AS or A-level Maths then they may be more inclined to overlook the GCSE requirement. Without further achievement in the subject they have little reason to not do so, and even if you did get that they aren't obligated to waive that requirement by any means.

    As above the best way to know is to ask them directly.
