I’m currently looking at a university course at my dream university but it has the requirement of a 5 at gcse maths. Unfortunately due to the fact I was put for higher maths in the January of year 11 but had to teach myself all of higher maths because my school didn’t want to move me into another set. I came out with a 4 in maths, is it definite I won’t get onto the course due to this?

GCSE requirements are usually pretty firm. The uni will usually expect you to retake your GCSE if you don't meet the requirements. You can arrange to retake this year and apply with the GCSE as pending, and receive an offer that's conditional on your GCSE results as well.
