    Okay so basically i was accepted to do A-levels in Maths, physics and computer science in my sixth form. I've got As and a*s in these subjects as predicted grades. However, after the terrible paper 1 for maths just a few weeks back i dont think i am able to get an A in maths, which is what i need in order to do my a levels as you need a grade A in maths for them. My paper 2 was good, seeing that i got around 72-80 in the second paper thanks to unofficial mark scheme, but my paper 1 was really bad getting around 47-50, adding up to around the 120s. I feel like i can do better and i really need that A so im retaking in november. If i get an A in the maths retake, will i be able to still do my chosen a levels at my chosen sixth form?

    Only your chosen sixth form can answer that question. Only they can tell you if they would change their entry requirements for maths or what you could do to prove you are capable of success if you don't get close to an A.
