    HELP!!
    I'm hoping to be taking Mathematics and Physics at AS level in September as they are the subjects I am most passionate about, except I need B's at GCSE for both courses, which I don't have (by a few marks!!) I have 1 mark off a B for GCSE maths and a few marks off a B for physics (was nervous for exams so didn't manage to finish either exams) so I want to change my results to B's for when I enroll to college in September. Will my results be checked or will they just look at my certificate and that will be it?? I'm also hoping to take GCSE physics and maths resit classes in college to get legitimate results for uni etc. Please can someone help!!

    Are you saying that your going to put down B grades when you didn't achieve them?
    You might get away with it, but more importantly are you sure that you will succeed in A level Maths and Physics when you got C's in them at GCSE? Its definitely possible for you do well if you put the work in but keep in mind that the entry requirements are set for a reason. Good luck tho

    Hey, I'm going to be totally honest here because I wish someone was with me 3 years ago when I started college. I'm a third year at college as I had to resit my AS year. I got A in Physics, A* in Chemistry and A* Biology at GCSE. I took Physics, Chemistry and Maths at A Level. In my first year at College I got D,D,U. In second and resit year I got B,B,D. This year to get into my choosen university I need ABB. Physics and Maths are not subjects to take lightly, I was in no way the brightest kid at high school I had to work hard to get my grades, but no where near as hard as I have to work now for A Levels, I revise day in day out and still can only scrape B's in past papers on a good day. I want you to know fully that the jump from GCSE to A Level is as big as people make out. The challenge however is pretty good and the feeling of finally understanding something is amazing.

    I applaud your passion and if this is something you really want to do then go for it! Grade restrictions for courses are there for a reason, but if you think you have to power and determination to do it then do it!

    Please just be prepared, organise yourself well and most importantly don't be afraid to let someone know if you're struggling with a topic or subject.
