    Hi!

    I think you would need to resit your Maths GCSE as I'm pretty sure the minimum entry requirement is a B grade.

        Might be worth checking with sponsors, as they may see your degree as sufficent to do the FD. I'd call and ask them. This topic has come up before but everyone is slightly different with qualifications.

                Most colleges stipulate 5 GCSE's at grades A* to C. Which must include English, Maths, Science and at least 2 other subjects.

                in order to apply for the FD route a minimum of 120UCAS points will be required in A levels one of which must be either Maths or an acceptable physical sience.

                These are the minimum requirements. It's actually the colleges that set the entry grades. Some sponsoring companies will sometimes set higher requirements.

                You would definitely have the entry grades for an HND cadetship, I think because you didn't take maths or physics at A level you may not be able to take a Foundation Degree Cadetship but that would be something to discuss at the time of application.

                  I might be wrong but I would leave the D's and e's off your CV. Don't lie just don't include them.
                  If you degree had an economics or maths element I would be sure to point that out.

                    I'm not sure that would be such a good idea Lewis...

                    I can imagine an interviewer asking why you only took 1 A level, and then finding out you hadn't put them on your application form. Wouldn't it look like you were ashamed of them/trying to hide them? D's and E's are still passes at A level and do count for something.

                      They'll ask for a copy of your exam certificate anyway, so there's no point hiding it.
