Hello, i was just wondering if i could get into university dispite not doing history or geography at gcse level; chose to do religious studies and business instead. I want to study religious studies at uni, but am unsure whether not studying one/ both of these subjects means that i cannot apply for a course.

I would suggest going onto the websites of the universities that you’re thinking of applying to and checking their requirements. If they require any particular A-Levels it will be on there.

They are unlikely to be required GCSEs for any Theology / Religious Studies courses at university.

So yes, you can.

Hello, I have applied to study theology at uni this year. I also did not take history/geography at GCSE (and took business and RE) and have received offers from 4 good unis (Durham, Exeter, Bristol, Lancaster). I also had an interview at Oxford and am waiting to hear the result of that. In researching where to apply, nobody seemed to specify GCSE subjects so you shouldn't have any problems. Best of luck.
