So I'm probably gonna get a 4 in maths, but I've been told that I won't do good in A level maths by my teachers so what other courses can I take to get a higher level in maths?

Realistically, if you achieve a grade 4 then A-Level Mathematics will not be the best option.
Most courses that have a bit of Mathematics involved require at least a grade 5 at GCSE but I think a grade 6 is ideal.
What do you want to do after GCSE’s?

If you dont want to study a level maths, you could study Core Maths at a level, some sixth forms provide that course! Its typically a one year qualification and I did it in year 12, its really helpful if you hate maths, but still want something practical

Sorry for the late reply! I'm not sure what qualifications you need for that career, but I don't think it is that Mathematics heavy as it sounds.

On the gov website it says for an apprenticeship you need:5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C), or equivalent, including English and maths, for an advanced apprenticeship
4 or 5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C) and A levels, or equivalent, for a degree
apprenticeship

And through University I'd need:2 to 3 A levels, or equivalent, for a degree

a degree in any subject for a postgraduate course

Perhaps, try and get that Maths grade up to a 5.

Have you tried looking at MathsGenie? They have questions targeted for certain grades:
