Hello. I've been looking at Universities because I like to plan ahead. I'm only at Nat5 but I'm worried about a few things.

Maths has never been a strong subject for me. I've completed my Nat5 Maths assesment/exam. I'm a bit worried I'm going to fail due to not doing too great on my other math tests.

I'm interested in studying English one day. I'm taking mostly English and Social Subjects. Do most universities require Nat5 maths, even for an English course? Would I have to resit it? I'm planning on retaking it in S6 if I have to, is this a bad idea?

Email this admissions for the uni and department/courses you are interested in and ask if not having maths will be view negatively. They are usually very helpful.

Some unis ask for it, some don’t.
It’s generally not required unless you want to go into teaching.

For me, the only uni that wanted nat5 maths from me (applied for Italian and German) was St Andrews. They had a little list where you needed a B at nat5 which was mostly STEM subjects. I didn’t do any sciences and only had Nat5 maths so that’s the only thing it was useful for for me.
