    I'm in exactly the same situation however after speaking to my teachers I realised I'm only 3 marks off a B and they have said that they will most likely still let me on the course of I decide to do it. Talk to teachers at your school and maybe they'll give you advice and maybe even let you know that you can still do it if there is room! Good luck!

    Wow.... We are quite literally in the same boat LOL. I'm here writing a 4000 word essay (literally) to the Head of History at my school, explaining why I deserve to do A-level history. Tbh they'd probably let you do it if you beg hard enough, speak to your Head of History and explain that you have a genuine interest for the subject. I'm sure if your teacher realises how much you enjoy the subject, then he/she may show some leniency. Good luck.
