Basically I will be applying to Uni next year for 2010 entry. The only problem is I want to do a business course and many of them require maths at GCSE level with grade A. I got a B and am thinking of retaking although I really struggle with maths so would prefer not to as it might mean my other subject results suffer as a consequence. The rest of my GCSE's were good (3A*/4A/4B) and am doing 4 AS's and predicted AAAA.

So i would like to email the admissions team and find out if the A at maths is necessary. I am not sure how I should write the email? Who do I address it to etc. Anyone help?

Btw It's to Leeds university and Exeter..

You can phone them instead. The information for admissions (like the address/fax/number) should be listed on the websites in the undergraduate sections.

I always e-mail uni's just in case I need proof of their answer at a later date.

You need to address it to the admissions department for the relevant course. Simply state your query and thank them for taking the time to read and answer your question.

So kinda like

Dear sir/ madam

I am interested in applying to study ...... in the 2010 academic year. I saw in your prospectus that you require a maths gcse grade A. However I currently hold a grade B. Is it likely that you will still consider my application with this or will I need to retake and obtain the higher grade? I am apprehensive of doing this (state the reasons you gave in your post)
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I look forward to your reply
Yours sincerely
,,,

or something along those lines
Just remember to keep it polite and make it clear what you're asking.

It is unlikely that they will change their admissions policy unless you were subject to some extenuating circumstances, but there's no harm in asking

Edit: You can usually find the admissions e-mail address for your course with the course details in the prospectus.

As above. Just keep it short, simple and accurate. They don't need your life story or anything.

..and make sure you e-mail the right people. In asking UCL for feedback I think I may have e-mailed one random woman who works there...oh well.
