Yes if you fail you have to retake the GCSE in around November time and if you fail that, again with the next GCSE year in June time. You will be put in a new class to work towards passing it, so yes you have to study. You get to chose your A Levels at the start of the academic year in September, regardless if you pass or not. It just depends on if your school/college will let you take the A Level without the GCSE qualification yet, which they often do if they know you will work hard in that subject.

If you fail maths and English lang GCSE, you do have to study for the retake but you do this alongside your chosen A levels.

I don’t really understand how its work so everyone can do A-levels even they fail maths and english just retake them alongside their A-levels? But the college entry requirements said that you should gain a minimum of 4 in eng and maths to do A-levels but if its like what you said does that mean anyone can do A-levels?

At my school this is done based on individual A levels. Some subjects require passes but some don't. For lots of subjects everyone can do A-levels even they fail maths and english just retake them alongside their A-levels as long as they meet the entry requirements for that subject. I'm not sure if this is the same everywhere though.
