    I am currently in y11 planning to take the following a levels:
    Maths
    Further Maths
    Physics
    Chemistry

    I am concerned since i only got an 8 in my maths mock, and i need a 9 for FM. I also only got a 7 in Chem and a 6 in bio and my school requires a 7 at gcse to take a subject at a level. However i am passionate about the maths and sciences and enjoy revising them much more than anything else

    My mock results
    maths 8
    bio 5
    chem7
    phy6
    german7
    french6
    geog6
    eng lit 8
    eng lang 8
    drama 5

    note: although i did pretty well in english i find it extremely boring (i did no revision for the mocks because of this) but it seems that it is my strong point

    If u have any advice for what i should take pls reply.

    Hmm you should take what you enjoy. If you have a passion for the sciences and maths then take them, your grades aren’t bad. I’m taking chemistry next year and I only got a 7 mock result so don’t worry about that. Good luck deciding
