    Well today and yesterday, I had additional science mock exams and you had to get at least a C grade in all three to do higher tier additional science, however I have a feeling that I haven't passed the mock exams. So I was wondering if doing foundation additional science would still allow me to do the A-levels that I have picked to do in sixth form. (I chose Biology, Chemistry and Maths)

    I guess having this grade would contribute towards being able to do the A-level. However I wanted to do the same ( A-Level Biology), I had a C in science core and C in foundation additional science with a B in English, however i had a D in maths so they wouldn't let me. I think you should speak to someone who teaches that subject and ask if they could allow you to do it. Advice i can give is to not completely focus on your science, try to get good grades in your other subjects just in case you need them to enter the A-level as well.
