Am I able to do A levels in Maths, Biology and Chemistry if I get lower predicted grades? ( Less than 4).

Probably not. Most 6th forms set entry requirements for A levels - what they are varies but they are seldom below a 5 in the subject you want to study and may be 6 or 7. If you can't get at least a 5 in the relevant GCSE then you would be wasting your time studying Maths or Sciences at A level because you'd be missing so much of the basic, required knowledge.

No. In my school they require you to get at least a 7. Unfortunately, if you get less than a 4 at GCSE you would not be cope with the content and the workload.
Unless you have some mitigating circumstances?
