At my school our requirements were:

Physics - grade 6 in physics and maths
Chemistry - grade 6 in chemistry and maths
Maths - grade 6 in maths
Further Maths - grade 7/8 but ideally a 9 in maths

Each school sets its own requirements - you'll need to check in the Sixth Form Prospectus of the schools you are interested in.

It definitely depends on the school so you'd have to research specific Sixth Forms, but my old school requires:

Chemistry - 7 in maths and 7 in chemistry (or 7-7 in dual award science)
Maths - 7 in maths
Further maths - 8 in maths
Physics - 7 in maths and 7 in physics (or 7-7 in dual award science)

at my college it’s 7 for any of the sciences 7 for maths and 8 for further maths. but if you take further maths you have to take maths as well.

it depends on where you wanna apply, check the requirements before hand. good luck

- State Schools have a lower entry requirements, they usually ask for:
Chemistry: a 6-6 in Double Award Science with grade A (7-9) in each chemistry units, OR a 6 in straight Chemistry GCSE and a 6 in Maths is desirable.
Maths: 7 in Maths OR 6 in Maths and 4 in Further Maths.
Further Maths: 7 in Maths AND 6 in Further Maths.
Physics: a 6-6 in Double Award Science with grade A (7-9) in each physics units, OR a 6 in straight Physics GCSE AND a 6 in Maths is essential.

These are the grades that most state schools asks for in my area.

- Grammar and Independent Schools usually have a higher entry requirements:
Chemistry: 8-7 in Double Award Science with grade A (7-9) in each chemistry units, OR a 7 in straight Chemistry GCSE AND a 7 in Maths is essential.
Maths: 7 in Maths.
Further Maths: 8-9 in Maths AND 8-9 in Further Maths.
Physics: 8-7 in Double Award Science with grade A (7-9) in each physics units, OR a 7 in straight Physics GCSE AND a 7 in Maths is essential.

These are the grades that most Grammar/Independent schools asks for in my area including my school.

As Muttley said it varies. Generally for this combination you'd need at least a 7 (or often an 8 to take fm) in maths and a 6 in chem/physics, but it's up to the school to decide this and it could be higher or lower.

Where have you got these from? You definitely don't need GCSE further maths for A-level further maths.

[though 7 in maths for maths, 7 or 8 in maths for fm is about right]

at my school you need a 6-6 in science and a 6 in maths to do bio, chem or physics. then for maths you need a 7, and for further maths you need an 8. but with science, one of my closest friends got an 8-7 in science (9s in biology) but only did foundation maths and got a 5, but because of her strength in biology she was able to do it

I got it from my school's entry requirements and many other schools in my area.
