    I've applied to study Maths, Biology and Chemistry at A-level. I'm quite confident in science, but I'm worried about maths. I've achieved a LOW B in my last mock before my exams, but after sitting my exams in maths, I'm feeling worried that I won't achieve a B (which I need to study maths). My maths paper was Edexcel(and everyone has complained that the exams were too hard), I'm not bad at maths, it's just that I don't understand some of the things that we study and sometimes the wording of the question throws me.

    I'm considering changing my A-levels to English, Biology and Psychology, but I really want to study the A-levels that I've applied for because they allow me to do that courses that I'm interested in at University. I'm just worried about failing my maths A-level exams.

    What do you suggest that I do?

    Go with your heart!
    But maybe speak to a teacher eg. Biology or Chemistry teacher, they know your ability so they could help, I did that personally.
