    It really depends on the course/s you want to do. At my college you do need 5 gcse's A*-C to do A Levels, or you would be put on a level 2 course, which is equivalent to a few GCSEs and after passing this (takes a year), then you could do A levels. If you get english and maths and one other subject, you might get a chance to, but I doubt you would with one GCSE. Best to wait until results day, you'll do a lot better than you think, I thought I'd passed 2, turns out I passed 8. Just wait it out, the next 5 weeks will fly by, so try not to worry.

    Every college/sixth form is different so I think after results day you need to get in touch with them and talk it through. However at the moment you don't know what you got (you may have done better than you think) so my advice would be to keep busy and take your mind off it, and if you didn't do as well as you'd hoped then you'll just have to face it when it comes to it, but there isn't anything you can do now.

    Good luck

    Honestly, I did my GCSEs last year and I absolutely lost my sanity looking at the predicted mark schemes, as I thought I had lost so many marks.
    Naturally because of this, and seeing the grade boundaries the day before Results Day, I came into Results Day absolutely petrified for lack of a better word xD

    I ended up with an amazing set of results after all that stressing so I would say is PLEASE enjoy your summer, you will regret it if you don't come September when you start A-Levels as the jump is really quite something of a joke. It's okay to be worried, but I'd definitely try and leave that behind until say the day before Results Day

    All the best and good luck when the day comes

    If you don't make the grades, they're unlikely to let you on the A-level courses. The requirements exist so that people don't go on a course they will struggle with and get an E. You can retake a few GCSEs along with some Level 2 courses (equivalent to GCSEs), then if you do well, you can do A-levels in your 2nd and 3rd year.

    Don't give too much weight to unofficial mark schemes. They can often be wrong.
