    I did pretty well in my other GCSEs
    I got 9 A*-C but I got a D in chemistry. Mostly because I wasn't interested in it and my teacher wasn't very helpful.
    anyway I'm in no way interested in having chemistry as an A level or a career
    later on. I'm more into maths and physics.
    If i got an A in physics and a C in biology and an A in maths. Does it really matter i got a D in chemistry. Should i resit it?
    Will unis look down on it?

    No it is not, some people do not even have any science GCSEs as it is possible to drop GCSEs (only crappy schools allow you to do this though).
    However if you would like a future career such as dentistry or Engineering they prefer at least a pass. Search for your uni entry requirements.
