    I really want to study physics at university, is it even worth me applying with that grade? I have my eye on unis like Royal Holloway, Sussex, Surrey and Kent.

    You should be able to get offers from those unis (except maybe surrey) if you can get predicted a B for A-level but the more important A-level for getting an offer is maths anyway

    My daughter got a C in her AS level physics, retook her EMPA and unit 1, and got a C in her A2 as well lol.
    However she is starting theoretical physics at Sussex in a couple of weeks. (Firm offer was ABB, and she got BBC but was still accepted)

    May be worth applying for the BSc rather than the MPhys as grades may be lower. Dundee was also an option.

    As mentioned Maths needs to be B or higher to have an chance of a serious offer.
