    Alright, long story short.
    >Chose language and decided to go into law and become a lawyer.
    >Did not do well in maths at GCSE(Which I'm getting an impression is needed in most uni's for what I will be doing next)
    >Did not like language. Results are due next Monday and don't think I'll do great.
    Here's where everything smashes.
    >Want to do Biochemistry
    >Have only 9-10th year science background.

    Questions:
    • Do I have to do redo my GCSE to be able to do science in A-Levels? Or can I just take A - Levels directly?
    • Do I need A - Level or GCSE Maths to apply for it? I am terrible in maths.


    Keep in mind, I am from Mauritius. So, I don't know if anything is going to be different or not.

    I am really interested in doing Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Have no idea where in the world to apply(Would love some options from people here) but I want to get great grades for better chances.

    You need good GCSE including English and Maths in the UK to proceed on to A levels regardless of whatever.

    Not what I'm saying. I got my gcses. Just with no sciences. So I wanted to redo A level science to get a chance at uni. Do I have to redo gcse with science or can I just do A level directly?

    You will have to redo your GCSE science before you could be qualified to do any A levels in the sciences.

    Good luck in advance.
