Are these igcse cie grades good enough ?
Chemistry core = C
Physics = A
ICT =B
English first language (oral endormsent) = D
Arabic language = A
biology = B
Business studies = A
Mathematics without coursework = B

QUESTION= can I continue and do A level with these marks ? I have a problem and that is the igcse English , I got a D which I am not really happy about , I don't want to retake for now as I want to concentrate on my As and A levels , the question is can I take IELTs after I finish A LEVELS. As an alternate for my igcse English , I don't want to retake as I have to pay and go through the procedure again , I want to start fresh with As levels , and do the IELTS for an English certification after that ? Is that possible . Thanks for reading , appreciate any kind of help .

Of course you can do A levels with these grades, again depending on which subjects you want to take; I would strongly advise on taking subjects in which you got C or Ds, a B is fine but you will have to work harder than average. Also, I would actually re-sit english as this year paper was horrendous and in my school people who were predicted As barely scraped Cs. Furthermore, it is not a subject which you really need to revise apart from few past papers so it would be best to retake it as i also think a C in lang is essential for most unis.

If you do the count in oral make sure your speech is on point and that you are relaxed, as speaking are easy marks. For paper 2, its simply practice practice, read marks schemes and have a clear mind on the day. For paper 3, try to read as much as you can and look at sample essays on youtube etc
