    Righty. This is a little long but bear with me.
    So I've been thinking about my a-level subject which i had initially chosen to be psychology, media, sociology and r.s, but I feel they are not very strong subjects. I've been looking up on it a little and want to choose at least one facilitating subject. But the only problem is that i was put down as foundation for science at GCSE at the last minute *(half my class were and we were top set which was so ridiculous but besides the point.) So would there be absolutely no way for me to take a science at a-level. Tbh i know that if I try hard I can do it and stay on top of my work but ill be really bummed if there's no chance I'd be able to take it.
    If you guys have any words of wisdom Id really appreciate it.

    It depends on whether you will you were capable of getting higher than a C. For chemistry and physics I think you need to be at least A/A* standard at GCSE to cope, for bio maybe A/B. Ofc you can succeed if you work but some still depends on ability
