I dont think there is. Check for yourself. I have given you your best option but for some reason you wont accept it. The course you are chasing is a Mathematical one and you dont have the mathematics proof that you are able to complete the course. Most GOOD universities require A level Maths grade A including Bristol, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Imperial, Durham, Kings and UCL. Those that dont require this require grade b in GCSE and those include East Anglia, Lancaster, Reading, Royal Holloway and Sussex.

It is now time for you to face the reality that your Maths will stop you getting into university until you get at least a B in GCSE Maths and you are highly unlikely to be able to transfer without it. You either need to accept the one decent option that did accept GCSE Maths grade C or you will not be going to university or end up in a lesser university.

No asking the same question numerous times on here is going to alter the facts.

Foundation year at Durham could be an option? - can't see that they require a B in Maths but they have other criteria that you'd have to meet

UEA also could be an option for a foundation year.

Durham are not in clearing and would want higher grades than OP has. Highly unlikely he will get in. His best option has been Kent where he meets the criteria but has continually rejected the suggestion.

Yeah I haven't looked specifically for courses in clearing. I agree, from searching this question before, Kent (although it has slipped in recent years) and Essex are the best 2 options for people with less than a B in GCSE Maths. Warwick for Cyber Security is arguably a better, as its a much better university and there's a good amount of CS content but it depends how interested in Cyber they are, but that only requires a C in GCSE Maths I believe.

Hi there 😊

That’s an excellent set of results well done! I can’t say for certainty whether you’d be likely to be accepted in your application but we have spaces in clearing for computer science.

Although you don’t quite meet the requirements with GCSE mathematics, you aren’t too far off. You could give our clearing hotline a call to see your best route into Higher Education. You never know until you give it a try!

Here is some information about the course http://www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-st...r-science.aspx

Our clearing number is:
0118 4020900

The team are really friendly and can direct you with your next steps!

Good luck I hope all goes well for you 😊

Your university has already rejected OP due to the GCSE Maths grade.

My apologies, I wasn’t aware as I could not see it mentioned on this thread.

I hope that you get into university but if not, you could maybe retake your maths gcse or reapply to university after taking a gap year which may help you if you have more experiences (this was the case with my applications to university after a year out).

Best of luck to you leobarry if I can help in any other way please don’t hesitate to ask 😊
