I applied to this grammer school in my area and luckily they gave me a conditional offer. I chose bio Chem maths but under the condition that I get a grade 7 or above in all of them.

I was pretty confident before GCSEs and I was planning to get all 8/9s but kept procrastinating until the night before the exams (pretty stupid, right?)

Because of this I think I got 7/8 in the sciences but I think I got a 6 in maths. I’m scared that they won’t give me the place.

I’m planning to change maths to computer science or something.
I’m feeling very insecure because since I agreed to the conditional offer they might not let me change subjects. After hearing my grade in maths they might even outright reject me.

Would they let me change it?

Hopefully, if your computer science grade is what they want, they will want you to change. They want students who will do well in exams as obviously they only pick certain students. I would assume that they would let you switch however if they don't and you don't think you will get the right maths grade, make sure you have a backup college to go to!
You could send them an email right now to ask. My friend is in a similar situation as she needs 7's in science but thinks she got 5's and 6's so is emailing them to check what will happen :-)

Thanks so much!! I didn’t actually think of contacting them and it never occurred to me. Hopefully my message will reach them. I’ll try contacting them as well. Thank you for the suggestion. My guilt is starting to recede. Thanks again!!

hey i think if you wanted to do maths at a level but cant cuz of your grade, if you actualy enojy that subject and want to do it, i dont think you should change that subject for computer science unless you have changed your mind. worst case scenario you dont get in, but maybe you get to do the subjects you enjoy. but if your grade in maths has made u change ur mind abt the subject, if u want to you could change it to computer science.

idk if this helped xx
