    Most universities expect at least a C or above in maths, English lang and science.

    Have a look at where you're interested in studying and see what grades they expect. Why can't you retake anything btw?

    Well i didnt do gcse biology. I did double award science. I got a B in core and a C in additional. In college they only let people resit who dont have a c grade

    Double award science is ok. My advice still stands, have a look at universities you're interested in and see what entry requirements they have. Get yourself out to some open days and think about trying to get some work experience as well.

    Thankyou, i got an A in english but C in math. Do you think i have a chance? Considering the gcse requirements. I know i meet the entry but im worried because i have a c in math and science whereas other applicants may have higher grades

    I wouldn't worry too much about your GCSE grades they're above the requirements for most places, work at your A levels or whatever you're studying at college and get a good mark in that, get some good work experience that you can discuss in your PS and interview and see how it all goes.
