    so... My AS results were AABC and im predicted AAA at A-level,

    Im applying to do psychology at Uni and i really like York Uni. The entry requirements there are only AAB/ABB....... BUT i only got a C at GCSE maths and on the admissions bit it says you need at least a B at GCSE maths or the equivalent and A- level.
    I do A-level psychology and I’m an A student in it. So could this compensate for my GCSE results? not bragging or anything :P but Ive got a good personal statement with Volunteer work abroad, DOE, young enterprise and representing county at sport ect.....

    do I still have a chance of getting in???

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    thanks

    No. 99.99999% chance they'll automatically reject you.

    Ring and ask them, however they'll probably reject you. I would take a gap year and retake GCSE maths during it.

    Talk to admissions and see what they say.
    Without doing this, they'll automatically reject you as everyone else has said.
    Also, you can retake your GCSE in June/July (you missed the November reists )...you might beable to still sign up for it. Talk to your teachers about that ASAP. (Oh, and the reason that might help is because you can put down your expected grade [higher then a C] which might get you through)

    Talking to admissions is definitely a good idea.

    I would say e-mail would be the best way to contact the department though as you then have proof of what you have been told.

    If they say having a C in maths GCSE is ok and then later reject you for this reason you can forward the previous e-mails and they may reconsider.

    Also mention your grades at AS and predicted A2 grades as this may help them with their reply. Also offer to give them any more information they may need to make a decision.

    Hope this helps =] good luck

    I got AAA and Manchester want me to get my C grade to a B, so I'd say you need to retake it.
