Applying to UCL with a 4 in GCSE maths

Hi, I'm thinking of applying to UCL for BA English this year.

The minimum requirement across all degrees are a Grade 5 in Maths, however I have a 4. I meet the requirements for a contextual offer (young carer) and UCL said my application is "likely to be considered, but may be less competitive" but I am wondering if it is actually worth applying - or if that just means they'll look at my application, but it's very, very likely to be rejected. I don't want to waste 1 of my 5 options on a chance like that. So, realistically, do I actually have a chance of an actual offer, or is that a polite 'thank you, but no thank you.' UCL do interview and have admissions tests for English also.

(My other GCSE grades are fine - 7's/8's/9's, and my A-Level predictions are above the minimum required AAA)
If I was you, I would contact the uni if they would be lenient on that 5 in GCSE maths or if you would just get rejected

Apply, it's only 1/5 choices -- if you have a valid reason for that 4, do explain in the contextual form or reference.

I don’t think UCL have a contextual form, like Cambridge have an extenuating circumstances form.

Sorry, I didn’t look at how old they were.
