    Your sixth form or college will likely make you retake your maths and english GCSE if you're planning on going to university you need at least a C grade or above in english and maths GCSE and employers usually require these grades

    Can you not resit privately or at college. Tbf the only important GCSEs are English and Maths, you need them at a C.

    Most colleges who accept students without these now offer (and insist on) maths and English resists, if you don't have A*-C, as part of their courses. It'll likely be built in to your timetable.

    Got to Harrow College. Ask to retake English and Maths alongside your A levels. They may allow you. I went to harrow College and a lot of people also did a GCSE alongside their A levels so they are likely to allow it.

    You may not get in to your current choice (only they can confirm that) but there will be places that will accept you, don't worry. You'll find somewhere, try to stay calm about it. You can also ask your school for advice on local places that would accept you.
