    Greetings!

    I just finished my IGCSEs subjects and passed them with an A-C grade, however only in Biology I have a D grade.
    Now I will be doing A-levels next, so will there be a problem if I pick Biology for the A-levels? NOT in terms of my capabilities, I mean in terms of if I am ALLOWED to pick Biology for my A-levels in the first place since I only got a D in Biology in the IGCSE.

    I would appreciate any kind of response, thank you!

    I don't know anything about the school you're going to go to/going to but at my school the entry requirements for Biology are an A or above in Biology and a B or above in Maths. Hope this helps and good luck!

    It depends on the entry requirements of your college. For example, at my sixth form you needed a B in at least two separate sciences at GCSE (or B in both core and additional science), B in Maths and C in English, in order to do A Level Biology
