    A B is recommended at the minimum in my sixth form. An A would be even better, but I see no major difference.

    Obviously higher means you're more knowledgeable and prepared. I'd say at least a B to be able to carry on A-levels without having to play catch up.

    My 6th form only allows you to do that a-level with a B. I think that either an A/B is fine for doing the a-level because it would prepare you enough and you wouldn't get too stressed out :-)

    Work really hard and you'll be able to get an A at A-Level even if you got a B at GCSE.

    However, if you work at the same pase as you did in GCSE which got you a B, no you can't.

    It depends on how much work you do. Work hard, get an A, don't work at all and you'll get bad grades.

    Depends, how much effort did you put into GCSE's?

    I put no effort into my GCSE's, and I stepped my game up a bit at A-levels to get better results than at GCSE.

    I sat my final exam in biology today, and time management is an issue that could bring my grade down, but my knowledge is sound.

    The general consensus is that whatever you get at GCSE, assuming you do an average amount of work etc you should get one grade lower at A-Level. Of course, if you work your absolute rear end off at it then you can get whatever you want really, just depends on how much work and effort you put into it.
