    Depends on the college as they'll all have different requirements (mine asked for a B at GCSE for example). Contact them and explain the situation and see what they say - if you were only 1 mark off a B it might sway things in your favour.
    i hope they let me off i have an interview for college tomorrow

    That's definitely a good opportunity to talk about it - it's a lot easier to make a case for yourself face to face.
    Do you know what the college would want you to get to do A level maths normally?

    I dont think so. Even people withs B grades usually struggle and cant keep up the pace. If you are determined enough though Im sure you can make the grades

    My school would let you - yes they'd ask you whether you're sure you could handle it but they'd let you i mean if you were a high performing student overall who seemed to be facing such circumstances then they'd help you too
    I got a C in bio and i guess being an internal student made it easier for me to still do it - I wasn't even persuaded to not take instead just put down for extra bio classes with minimal hesitation ask ur sixth form I'm sure they'd help you
    Sadly my school refused me again and again I went to another and they said no ....They don't seem to give a f*** about my circumstance so I might just have to self teach myself

    Getting a full A level in Maths would cost £97 and you'd have to arrange a price to actually sit the exams at a local school or centre.

    I'd say go and find yourself some tutors if u want to self teach or you could maybe take up an apprenticeship or even go to college ( I know college sounds bad but hey colleges r there to help after all I'm sure if you go you won't regret it as it would give you a sort of second chance but remember and rest assured that everything happens for a reason

    They won't let you do it even though you were only 1 mark off? Seems a bit tight - is this the college you'll definitely go to or do you have multiple interviews?

    The requirement would usually be a B. But of course theres a way round it, speak to the school explaining it and see what they say.

    That's ridiculous. That or I must've gone to a very lenient college haha (the requirement to study A level Physics was a B in both physics and maths GCSE, but when we started there were people who'd got into it with only a C in maths).

    I'm somewhere xd and I still can't get into mathematics and self teaching would just be too independent of a thing to do I give up
