There are definitely A level books on bio, chem and physics you can look online to find them for example:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Level-Biolo...6256686&sr=8-2

That is a biology one from Amazon but it really depends on your exam board and price range.
hope that helped

you will need to find a centre to take the exams through as there are required practicals

Yep
I was in a very similar position to you, I only achieved 6-5 in combined science, 5 in maths and 4 in English language. However I was very fortunate to change from applied science (which I found absolutely awful) to a levels in biology, chemistry and psychology. You could always consider changing sixth forms?

What do you want to go on to do? Do you need the knowledge you will gain from self-studying?

Are you able to get in with your Applied Science btec? I'm not familiar with btecs really. If you are then sure, you can read up on the relevant bits. Would probably avoid physics if you don't need it though (unless you want to do something medical physics related?). Generally bio and chem will suffice and the third option is used to supplement learning as it's mandatory. Just search up some textbooks online and flick through whatever would be helpful. If you don't actually want to take exams in the subjects then you've got more freedom in terms of how to revise. I would still recommend doing some past paper questions to solidify your knowledge but it's not as essential as if you were doing the actual A level. Good luck.
