    I am from South Africa in grade 11 and I am planning to study at Durham University in the UK. I will be studying music in 2019. They require an AAB at A level for music. I need to apply with Grade 11 and 12 marks first term marks. My marks are;

    English Home Language - 70%
    Afrikaans Additional Language -82%
    Mathematics - 53%
    History - 83%
    Business Studies -85%
    Economics - 65%
    Life Orientation - 73%
    Music P/T average - 78%

    I am concerned about my Math marks because Math is important in any field you study in, I think. Any help would be appreciated

    In the Uk you would have been able to drop maths completely at the end of the academic year you turned 16 as long as you got a basic pass (Grade C/Grade 4) Students choose 3-4 subjects only to continue studying between the ages of 16-18.

    You need to ask the University what they require from someone from your country.

    Here you go, this is what you will need

    Matriculation/National Senior School Certificate with 76666 / ABBBB.
