It is not likely, but possible. More importantly, I would ask why you want to study math when your marks in math courses (apart from functions) seems to be lower than the rest. University pure math programs are infinitely more challenging and abstract than high school mathematics. I would only recommended it to people who breeze through their high school mathematics without a problem.

Don't listen to this guy. You'll get in as you still have a good chance at getting that average to a mid 80s, which is more than enough. I'd go for it if I were you.

Nowhere did I say he can't get in.

I said that it if you can't do high school mathematics easily, thinking he will do well in university mathematics courses, much less a pure math program itself, is unrealistic.

Idealism vs. reality - take it or leave it.
