    I really like Chemistry though, and I scored A/B in all exams, my coursework brought me down a lot and I have no idea what happened to it. The whole class got really bad, it's annoying.
    Fair enough, if you explain this to your college, they might see if you can take it. But I wouldn't hold my hopes up without the B.

    Oh, so there's no point in asking them to check to see if it is correct or not then, is it? Oh gosh, I hate my life
    There's no harm in asking. Try to find out if other people in your class had their marks changed...

    I'm afraid this isn't true at all. There is no advantage given to students studying maths as opposed to another 3rd unrelated A level. In fact, UCL give preference to those who take a contrasting subject. This is an absolute myth.
    Taking a 4th A level gives no advantage over 3 except for places like Bart's.

    The calculations in A level chemistry require no maths ability beyond GCSE. It's rearranging equations at its most complex.
    You obviously dont do chemistry then, or not past AS anyway, A2 chemistry is based heavily on maths introducing logarithms, which last time i checked isnt on the gcse syllabus.
    Also chemistry students need to be familiar with interpreting data and the numbers given as it rarely is just regurgitating an equation you learn in class.

    Maths - A* with only 8 marks dropped in the entire course.
    Geography - A*
    Biology - A*
    Chemistry - A*
    Physics - A*
    English Lang - A
    English Lit - A* (HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? English Lit was always my enemy from the start and I got a C in year 10 mock).
    RE - A*
    ICT - Merit with a couple of distinctions
    And I thought I was headed for 1-2 A*s and the rest As and Bs.
