    Hello,

    For the past few years I have had an interest in particle physics and would like to become a particle physicist in the future however there is a few things drawing me back.

    1)I have only got 2 B's in science at GCSE and 1B in maths.

    2)I don't know where to start when i have free time and want to read things about physics.

    I have picked Physics,maths,btec science and IT for A-Level and i am getting through those nicely but i just want to know a good website where i can get help for physics and whether my grades so far are sufficient for a particle physics.

    Thank you.

    I like the antonine education website that stonebridge has mentioned before. There's a small list of sites there as well. Your college/town library may have a subscription to new scientist which is a popular science magazine, ask a librarian. Also there are science programmes on bbc2, bbc4 and radio 4.

    You seem to be asking about studying physics at uni. You'll need good results in your A level maths and physics plus another A level for most places.
    unis will need minimum C (or even B) gcse grades in maths and english. You'll get a better idea of requirements by reading some uni websites.
