Hello I want to apply to a management/economics course or anything similar to that.

I’m a gap year student resitting maths gcse to go from a 4 hopefully to a 7.

However if that doesn’t happen what’s the best uni I could get into?

My grades are D*DD possibly going upto D*D*D with a resit in January. 4 in maths GCSE and 5 in English. The rest are pretty poor with most 4s and 5s and one B.

So what’s the best uni i could have a chance at?

As long as you get the GCSE resit, your overall GCSE grade profile will not matter that much.

However, finding a Management or Economics degree with a weak GCSE Maths grade could be a problem - one solution os to go for a degree with a Foundation year - one example : https://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/under...ation-year-bsc. You could have one or two choices like this, and that would give you a reliable Insurance, and have one of two other choices asking for a higher GCSE as a potential Firm - that way whichever way the GCSE went you'd be covered.

Hello thanks for your response! I was considering a foundation course and one that interested me was the Warwick management degree with foundation course however it’s also asking for a 6 in English. I’m considering resitting the exam in July next year because it’s an amazing school.

Is there any other universities around top 10/15 which offer a foundation year? Personally I wouldn’t mind going for a foundation year if it means I can get to a better uni with better prospects.

Thanks for your advice though much appreciated .

Google the relevant words - Foundation Economics University etc - then check the entry requirements.
There are lots - Durham, Southampton, Loughborough, Man Met etc. Just check that they are not widening-participation with strict entry criteria, or for those with the 'wrong' A level subjects.

In terms of universities with grade 4 Maths look into East Anglia, Kent and Keele to see if they accept it.
