They won't if Maths is 'required'.
If they want Maths A level they will still want it at Clearing.

Have you considered Loughborough's Industrial Design Course. They will both lead to very similar job opportunities, and are both very much intertwined.

The reason they require Maths is that some of the modules are heavy in Maths. The expectation therefore is that a student who did not pass A level Maths would struggle on these modules. The foundation year is to bring you up to the level that you should be at to start the full degree. They will not remove the requirement for Maths as they see it as a necessity.
