Is it worth resitting maths to go to my dream uni? Watch
Place Northumbria as your insurance. Newcastle does go through clearing so you may have another shot that way too in case things don't go so well!
Okay so I got an offer from Newcastle uni a few months ago. One of the conditions was to resit GCSE maths and get a grade B. My tutor is currently trying to persuade them to accept me anyway, but I’m almost 100% certain it isn’t going to work. Part of me really wants to go to Newcastle & has been googling like mad GCSE maths tutors. But another part of me feels like I’m clearly not smart enough to go to there and should just go to Northumbria instead. I’m planning on going to the open day and seeing what it’s like for myself. Should I consider resitting GCSE maths or is it a waste of time? It’s the only condition I don’t meet, but on the other hand, I’m pretty sh*t at maths and wouldn’t get a B anyway. Is a psychology degree from Newcastle more valuable than one from Northumbria? What do you think?
