Hi! This is my first post on here, just in need of some reassurance to ease my mind.
I’m currently planning on applying for Marketing/Marketing & Management (haven’t decided the exact course yet) at Newcastle, probably as my main choice. However, based on the GCSE entry requirements, I fall short of the requirement for Maths (course information states a 6 is required, I achieved a 5 due to sitting foundation). I heard that the more competitive/Russel Group universities are ‘non-negotiable’ when it comes to GCSEs.
I feel like I could still have a chance since my other GCSE grades are fine (all 6-8) and I’m predicted the required AAB for the course, but I was wondering if anyone else was given an offer under similar circumstances? I’ll probably still reply regardless in case luck is on my side, but I don’t want to get my hopes up.
Not necessarily looking for anyone to explicitly determine my chances of being given an offer, just asking to see if anyone knows more about how flexible universities are willing to be.
