    Okay but the statistics still hold that MOST people who get a B at GCSE get C/D at a level - it's a fact that unfortunately your opinion can't change. Also if u got A*/A in all your exams then u hardly provide any insight for the likely case of an actual B-grade student, in fact you're evidence that an A*/A student is still likely to get a B at AS/a level. But yes I know people who get B at GCSE can get A*/A/B at a level. Similarly people who get A*/A at GCSE can get B/C or worse at a level. Anything can happen.
    My school's letting me take the two sciences now. I complained to the head of Sixth Form (and so did my parents) and now it's all sorted out.

    You seem to be contradicting yourself a bit. You are predicted high grades, but not high enough to do 2 sciences at A-level, and yet you are currently attaining lower grades anyway.

    Sounds like you need to take a little step back, don't worry about A-levels yet, focus on improving your GCSE performance. If you do well in them I'm sure your school and you can revisit your choices.

    Good news, and good luck with your GCSEs.
