    Hi all sorry for long post in advance

    Not sure if anyone can advise me. I have been offered a conditional offer at my first choice uni, but out of all of my 5 choices, they are the only one that requires me to have GCSE Maths C. I had already spoken to them and told them I am not studying maths as I already have L2 functional skills in maths and Engish plus GCSE Equivalent. Now they are saying my previous maths is too old (2010) but the English is ok (2010).

    Can I contact them as I am now making my choices, to ask them to re-look at the conditional offer? or is not allowed.

    thanks again

    You can but given that they've already said no once they're unlikely to change their minds. It is strange though that the maths was done in the same year as the English but is not ok.

    this is really stressing me out as now as I'm trying to enter as a private candidate for GCSE Maths, and I only have until May to crunch everything in. Not sure I'm going to get a C as I have not studied shapes and algebra for over 20yrs.
