QMUL - Law, GCSEs

hii

i've been looking and researching universities a lot lately and i am interested in qmul law, but the requirements of gcse grades are 777766- this is no problem for me but this includes english and maths, but that's the problem i did higher maths and got a 5

i was wondering if this would result in a flat out rejection lol or if its still worth trying

thank you^

If you don't meet the GCSE requirements, this is usually gives a university automatic grounds for rejection. My advice would be to either resit maths is QMUL is your dream and try to gain a 6 or look elsewhere. The deadline for Summer 2024 resits will have passed by now, but you can still apply for a November 2024 sitting, when they become available. If you decide to resit, you will receive your grade in January 2025, before the UCAS equal consideration deadline, so in the event you don't gain the grade required, your won't have a wasted application to QMUL. If QMUL is the only university on your list that requires a 6 and it is not your top choice, I would seriously reconsider resitting. This can often be an expensive process and if its only for one university that you aren't determined to go to, it would just be a waste of time, effort and money. There are many good law schools that don't require a 6 in GCSE maths or a maths grade at all. Aside from Oxbridge, Bristol, KCL and Warwick are all ranked in the top 10 universities for law in the UK - none of which require a 6.
