    I want to do Journalism/IR programme but the problem is that my Math result in GCSE wasn't good and pretty bad so where should I apply for which I have good chance of being accepted?

    It's highly unlikely that a journalism program will have a specific math GCSE requirement. What are you studying now?

    I'm assuming these are A levels? Focus on these and make sure you meet the entry requirements for where you are applying.

    I have already applied for 4 unis but I really don't know about their entry requirements because when I saw at NTU site they said they require specific Math GCSE grade but when I emailed them they said they don't require it at all

    Hi Fasih123 - Thanks PQ for tagging us.

    Would you be able to DM me a screenshot of the email you recieved today? I'll then be able to have a chat with someone from the admissions team who will help to clarify

    Apologies Fasih, I read your original post wrong.

    I have contacted one of our Admissions team, so hopefully they will be able to confirm the entry requirements

    I will get back to you as soon as I can!

    Applying without checking entry requirements properly is a very poor decision. Anyway if you have applied then you will find out soon what offers if any you get and what their conditions are.
