    So, basically, when you get your GCSE results, you add them up and find out your GCSE score. From there, you can find out which programme is most appropriate. Between 4.0 and 4.75 is BTEC and from 5.25 and 6.5 is A-Level. If you get somewhere between 4.75 and 5.25, my College states there is 'some' flexibility with which programme is best appropriate, and will give advice. (But do YOU get to choose?) I'm just concerned that getting a D in R.E could be the thing stopping me from doing A-Levels, which has NOTHING to do with what I want to do (Biology, Psychology and Health Care) I'm just really confused in how it works?

    Depends on the college - if you get a D in R.S. but A*-C in all your other subjects then I don't see why they wouldn't let you take A-Levels?

    I would love to help, but I have no idea about this new grading system? I'm used to just letter grades. My college stated that as long as you had 5 B's or above, that you would get to choose the courses you wanted (and some other criteria). For example, if you wanted to study Maths, but got a C in the exam, then you may not be able to take maths at a level. You must pass firstly their expectations (e.g. 5B's), and then the course criteria to get into the subject. It is a lot less complicated than it sounds, I just do not know how to explain it any other way.
