    What if I get a D or less on my maths exam and everything else (biology, history and english) are 'C or above'? Do I still have a chance at going to a university or that's it? Cause I'm right here panicking over my future when I'm terrible at math.

    You can get into university so long as they don't require a C or above in both English and Maths, which many do. It may also depend on the individual course requirements. Work for that C though: you'll be in a much better position with it than without it.

    If you fail please try and resit it at college because as far as I'm aware most universities ask for a B in it these days

    Yes, most universities ask for a C +/ B + in maths and english. Don't worry though, there is still time for you to acheive those grades. It all comes down to how dedicated you are. Do a bit of daily practice, this will help you know what your weaknesses are. https://corbettmaths.com/5-a-day/gcse/ is an amazing site for this, choose your level of maths and it gives 5 questions a day (you don't have to do all 5, but do some) and when you start noticing questions you can't answer, those are the ones you should revise the most. After you are happy with a lot of the topics, try some past papers and this will also indicate some of your weak points that you need to work on. Overall, if you are unhappy with your grade, there is still time to improve it if you are dedicated. If you have any questions, we are all here to help you. Good luck!
