You will be able to surprise yourself with an A* or A grade, if you retake GCSE Maths, especially with the resources available online. :smile:

I have always struggled with Maths so I dont think ill retake just have to apply to UNIS with grade 5 req
Tbh maths at 5 should be fine for most law schools. As I say quite often, have a look at the Unis websites under the subject to see what they state. Most are 4/5 for maths/English. Some are 6 but not many.

Some universities do place a lot of emphasis on your GCSE grades as a whole, but overall your GCSEs are fine/good.
