The Kings College London psychology course requires a 6 in maths GCSE, however I got a grade 5 (due to Coronavirus making us not have GCSEs). If I get a much higher grade in my A-levels, than the required grade for the course (which is A*, A, A) but I still have that grade 5 from my GCSE maths, would I still be able to get given a chance to do the course? Especially because psychology is a very competitive course..

Hi,
I didn't do Psychology I did Biomed but will try and answer- I think that if you got good grades in your A levels then they may be willing to overlook it. Universities look more at A levels than GCSEs and given the circumstances they are likely to be understanding .

I'd ask, it's not worth the risk if they won't accept it

Corona lowered my grades too. I attend their lectures on medicine and they said no matter which subject, you have to have the gcse grades. Just resit maths. I resat English and got a 7. They won't consider you otherwise.
