    Maths - B

    Core Science - C -
    B1 - B
    C1 - C
    P1 - A
    ISA - E

    Additional Science -
    B1 - A
    C1 - A
    P1 - A
    ISA - C

    My sixth form are asking for a BBB, but I only have a BBC because of my failed ISA for core science. I know the best thing to do would be to ask my sixth form, but what do you guys think, can I get in? I mean it's only 1 ISA for chemistry, that doesn't prove that I can't do well in biology and physics. Thanks guys!

    I'm still taking my exams but I know for a fact that those are the minimal grades I have got. Thanks again.

    I'm pretty sure if you can convince them then you can get in. You need to argue your case clearly. and show that the C was because of the chemistry. I've heard of some people who got into Maths with less than the required grade so I think you can get in. It might be good to check out other sixth forms which have lower entrance grades though just to be safe if you really want to do bio or physics.

    Good luck
