Can bad GCSEs still have a chance to get into a good uni?Watch this thread
I didn't get the greatest GCSE results, but not the worst. I passed all my GCSEs but they're not high enough to get into the big universities that i want to aim for. For example, I got a 5 in maths however i want to go onto achieve a BSc in Finance which most universities need a grade 7 or above at GCSE maths. Does the GCSE criteria matter that much?
You could always re-sit. Make sure to smash out your A-levels and I don't see why they'd turn you down if you have outstanding A-levels but mediocre GCSEs.
The course you are looking to study is mathematical based so universities will require a higher grade in GCSE Maths and this is irrespective of how good your A level results. The grade in Maths is what a university thinks you need to complete their course. Your options are to resit your Maths to achieve the grade, look for universities that dont require a higher grade or take a less Mathematocal course.
