    So the college that I am applying for is sixth form college. And I wanted to do psychology, bussiness and biology but the problem here is that I need a level 6 in maths and im currently doing foundation paper so that is not possible. So if I got a really high level 5 for maths, two Bs for sciences and 4+ for English then could I still be accepted?

    Contact them and ask. However, it is unlikely for you to be accepted as you don't meet the minimum requirement.

    It really depends on your college and their rules. You could contact them and ask?

    If you honestly believe you can achieve a high level 5 it may be a good idea to do higher tier and attempt to get a low level 6. Sixth forms can make exceptions of course, but it's unlikely.

    No, I currently achieve 4s at the moment as maths is my weakest area. I was thinking that if they accepted high level 5s than I could be comitted to achieve them.
