    Don't worry, he will realise soon enough that he either has to improve or choose an alternate pathway ie. core maths.

    You've told them that they won't be able to, and if they won't accept that there's very little you can do, and it's better to leave it to the sixth form to tell him rather than you trying again (since it is very likely he will not be able to take it with a 5 at highest) My college required a 7 and they do not usually have particularly high entrance requirements.
    Given that there's no need for you to be the one to let him down, then preserve your friendship and let the sixth form do it

    So i have this friend who is srsly keen on taking a-level maths , the only problem is that he's most likely gonna get a C at gcse , mainly because he is taking foundation paper and the teachers are pretty firm with him because he gets c/d as an average on tests . Everytime i talk to him and try to convince him that most colleges won't accept c grade maths gcse for a-level (because most colleges want atleast a B i heard) he tells me to piss of and becomes a real douche to me , calling me an idiot and talking **** about me in front of everyone , any advice on how to handle this plz
    it is none of your business though,so why get involved.
