So I want to study economics at uni but most decent unis require grade 7 in Maths while I only got a grade 6. Would I waste my time applying for them?
Also how is it there are many people with average GCSE grades getting into top top unis. I just feel as if it’s unfair for me to be written off based on on gcse grade that is marginly different - my mindset was a lot different back the😤

some universities will accept core mathematics instead of a 7 in gcse maths, this course only takes a year, you should ask

Is it equivalent to A Level?

Lets say if you did further maths for your a level and got A*, I don't think they would mind that you got grade 6 in maths at gcse in my opinion. Try to learn from your mistakes and do better next time (in this case. your a levels)

I originally wanted to apply for economics at uni but I too got a 6 in maths, 1 mark off a 7 actually (remarked to 2 marks off a 7 🙃)
When I called unis, they told me that I should do it at a level and get at least a B. I didn’t bother and changed the course I was aiming for. But then I found the course in clearing (I didn’t switch though, I’m fine with law and business now lol).
I would call the unis you want to apply for, and if you were close to a 7 let them know.
