If somebody has a B in GCSE Single Award Science (as opposed to double or triple), should they be allowed onto an A-Level Science course, providing they do some extra reading?

Depends what science depends what they got individually in each science in the single award depends on the teacher. I did Triple science got a B in Chemistry and an A in Physics I got to do both but I find Edexcel Chemistry AS pretty hard it is alot of remembering things. Anything is really achievable with hard work but A-levels are alot more effort than GCSE you can easily pass GCSE without revision doing that in A-Level is pretty much a death wish.

Sorry for poor grammar in the middle of an AS Physics past paper gotta go fast

Ok, well in my case, for my single award GCSE I got:
Biology Unit - A (80/100)
Physics Unit - B (76/100)
Chemistry Unit - B (74/100)
Biology ISA - C (67/100)

I don't want to discourage you but you will struggle, its a big jump from even separate sciences let alone single. You could study the science subject you are interested in to separate standard and sit a past paper in Aug, it will give you an idea of whether you can cope at a level. If you didn't do the higher paper in maths I would advise against A level physics. You could also look at btecs?
