    hi guys i am worried Im In Yr 11

    I'm soo has at Maths I Think Im Going To Get A Grade 5 In the real thing Because Im Doing Foundation Because Im soo Bad At maths

    I am expecting these grades for the rest of my subjects

    English lang - 8
    English lit -8
    Biology - 8
    Chemistry -8
    Physics - 8
    Geography -8
    Graphics -A*
    French - 7
    Religious studies - 9
    Punjabi - A*
    Maths - 5 - lowest grade!!!

    Makes me sad

    I want to choose chemistry and biology and English lit for A levels but you need a grade 6 in math to choose chem and biology so you think they'd let me choose it if I get 8's in all sciences????

    I want to go Oxford or Cambridge but I feel like that grade 5 in just going to ruin all my chances.

    I'm actually stressing about this which do o have to be soo bad at maths. I feel so dumb

    I don't think there's any point doing the higher tier to get above I'll probably fail instead and I got a grade 4 in the recent mock!

    It depends on your school/college and their requirements. It is best to talk to your teacher or head about it and see if you could pursue these A-level options without reaching the requirement for maths.

    That being said, you might do better than expected in your exams and get a 6 in maths. Try to concentrate your efforts on grasping the content and understanding how to answer exam questions. If you are really struggling now, you might find it hard to do science at A-level, which has a lot of maths content.
