    Only if you plan on continuing to put in the same amount of effort. Work harder and you'll get a better grade.

    But I put in a lot of effort is it the fact that it's the first time I'm doing the subjects it is that I'm not good at them

    Mathematics
    What did you get at GCSE? And what grade do you want? Might be worth getting a tutor.

    I wouldn’t stress at all, I achieved D grades throughout my first year and after revision and many more test papers I came out with B’s and A’s, honestly in your first month of doing A levels you’re expected to get bad grades if you’ve not studied at A level levels before!
