    Did you make your absolute best effort to achieve those grades?
    What A levels do you have in mind?
    What can you see yourself doing after sixth form/college?

    No, it'd be a waste of time. You'd be better off getting an apprenticeship

    Bear in mind that the 5 Cs requirement is a minimum for most sixth forms/colleges and, in reality, you'd need to be performing at at least an A/B standard at GCSE in the subjects you're doing at A-level.

    This is for the simple reason that A-levels are much, much harder than GCSEs and the typical trend for a lot of people in the first year of A-levels is a downward one. If you struggle to get As/Bs in these subjects at GCSE, those grades are going to become even harder to get to at A-level.

    You should consider all your options. What do you want to do at university? There are less academically demanding paths to university.
