Can I do a level biology with Only a C in Core Science? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Say that I want to do A-Level Biology and I got my required B in additonal science, my required B for maths, but only a C in core science, BUT as I'm sure you all know core science consists of separate exams (at least for me) for bio, chem, and physics and I got an a* on the biology section but my chemistry and physics were not so good. Do you think i still have a chance at doing a level bio at sixth form? I don't see why I'd need a higher grade in chem and physics if im doing biology, thanks a bunch!

    I'm feeling the same way, in my sixth form I have to get 2 B's however I feel alright in biology but not so confident on chemistry and physics, maybe if you do well in the biology sub-level then they'll let you. I agree, I don't see why you need chemistry and physics if you don't want to take them😅

    Yeah obvs but you have to work hard and be on top of the class from the start so teachers like you
