Based on the GCSE exam papers I've seen this year and the difficulty of the A level papers I've just looked through, if you don't comfortably achieve at least a 6 you should seriously think about choosing a different A level in a subject you excel at.

I am generally achieving 6s and 7s at mock exams however these exams sort of hit me hard as they were harder than previous years

As were the A level papers. If you only achieve a 5 I would advise a rethink about taking A level maths. Talk to a maths teacher at your current school who really knows your potential and see what they advise.

Ok cool, I do believe I may get the 6 as I’m ranging at 105-116 marks just depends on the boundaries
