    Man, I think you need to do them again 'cause if a college or uni see that you got these grades they won't take you in mate. And only retry them if you are sure you can do better.

    based on the sixth form i'm applying to i need atleast 5Cs to do A levels and i need atleast Bs in the subject i'm choosing. I mean you can try and get a C in maths, then C for lit and C for bio, chem, phy and use the C for lang then you've qualified for sixth form. some subjects at A levels dont require you to do them at gcse, such as history, geography, RE, you can start them at A level
