let's say you meet the A-level grades to do a course like accounting and finance but you didn't meet the GCSE requirements so you got a 4 but they want a 7

Usually it will matter. Where universities state a GCSE requirement they usually stick to it as they see say a Maths requirement as necessary for an accounting course. There was someone on here this year who failed to get onto a Computer Science course at the required university with a grade 4 in Maths when a grade 6 was needed even though the BTEC grades exceeded the offer.

GCSE requirements generally don't change during Clearing. They're there to make sure you can perform well enough on the course so 3 grades below the requirement would probably be of concern.

You might want to look at retaking as most ACCYFIN programmes will at least have a GCSE Maths requirement, if not A-Level.
