Has anyone been accepted for a course without getting the GCSE grades they have asked for? I’m going apply to uni in September but they want 7 GCSE and I only have 4🙁

Universities are quite strict with GCSE requirements. Can you resit the GCSE?

To clarify - do you mean a grade 4 instead of a grade 7, or do you only have four GCSE passes?

I only have 4 GCSE passes, I didn’t sit 7 originally at school. Wondering if there is a way of sitting them as a mature student? I’ll be gutted if this holds me back

It won't just hold you back in uni, don't a lot of jobs ask for minimum five GCSE passes?
It should be possible to sit them at further education colleges, or you can sit them as an external candidate

Check with the university involved. The universities sometimes forego GCSE requirements for mature students..
