    I wanted to do chemistry and biology for a levels but i got a c for maths. The problem is that my college only accepts a b for maths so i couldnt do the courses I wanted to do so im thinking about either doing the btec course or doing a retake for maths. My science grades were decent i got an A for core and a B for additional(just missing out on an A) I need some advice on what to do

    Will you college let you take A-level science if you chose to retake your maths? If so then that's obviously a possibility. But be warned; Biology and Chemistry exams are not easy, so retaking your GCSE Maths at the same time could potentially hinder your grades in the Sciences. --- You could chose to do the Extended Diploma in Applied Science, which equivalent to 3 Alevels and should get you into university. --- What are you planning to do when you're older?
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
