okay so i want to apply to a prestigious university for 2022 to study law, either durham university, a red brick or kings college university. however i only have 5 gcse and they want a 6 in maths. but i am predicted a*aa for my a levels . But i live in a hostel and have no support from anyone so i have been told i have a good chance of getting a contextual offer. do you think they will care so much about my maths when they realize my home situation ?? or is there no point

Definitely apply to them if your predicted a level grades are that high

wait are you saying that you have 5 gcses, or that you got a grade 5 in maths?

either way, unis tend to be very strict in terms of meeting the gcse requirements, and those generally will not change with a contextual offer, however you should try contacting the unis and explaining your extenuating circumstances and see what they say. they will be able to give you a much more concrete answer than anyone here.

are you currently resitting gcse maths?

If you do not meet a specific GCSE requirement, its the quickest way to get a swift rejection.
Either retake the GCSE this year, or apply somewhere else.

I agree, contextual eligibility doesn’t usually affect GCSE requirements.
