Is there any way I could do A Levels with poor GCSE results?

Study for them yourself? Why do you want to do your A levels anyway? If you had poor GCSE results then I assume you're not that academic, or is there another reason?

Well I had problems in my last two years of school, and without a doubt I would have got high grades even if I just turned up to lesson, so now I just want to get back on track, but I don't know the best way to do this

Either do your GCSEs again to get into college, find a rare college that'll let you do your A levels without good GCSE results or just do your A levels on your own with self-teaching.

Ok thanks for the help, I'll probably redo my GCSEs then, seems like the right and best way to do things

Yes.

My GCSE: CCC

Just ask around. I just went for interviews and got into places. Then decided to self teach but without the expense as I now handily had somewhere I was registered for exams etc. (Y)

Depends on the extent of 'poor' GCSE's. Usually you should be fine, but if they are truely terrible, then you could try going for resits.
