If you haven't met their required standards, then yes, they will reject you. However, if you miss your offer by say, 1-2 grades, then they might be lenient. It all depends on how competitive the sixth form you've applied to is.

I think everyone is worried about results day and if they get what they were predicted/ what they were hoping for. The funding for my further education place is reliant upon my grades so I'm also feeling a little uneasy about it! Everyone's in the same boat! Just know that even though you may feel like you made mistakes etc in the exams, no matter how much you wish you could, you can't go back and change them now. Chances are, you'll hit your predicted grades. You may do better in some than expected, but not as well in others. There's really no telling until results day. Often, sixth forms are only exceptionally strict upon the requirements for maths and English, and any necessary for your course (Eg you may be required to get a B to do A-Level History, or a 7 (A) to do Maths). They may not recommend you do that course anymore if you didnt reach the requirements due to the difficulty of A-Levels compared to GCSE, and also because they'd like you to achieve the best grades possible at A-Level/IB/BTEC - please please please don't consider it as rejection. I doubt they'd just say no you can't come here, they may let you choose some alternative courses. Say if you were planning on doing Maths A-Level and got a 6, but you are intending on getting it remarked as you were several marks off, ring your sixth form up and let them know what the situation is (most schools/colleges/sixth forms are open on results day) and they'll support you and tell you the next steps.
