Does your school you attend now have a sixth form, because I have a friend who failed maths, english and quite a few other subjecs but my school let her go to our sixth form anyways (I think largely due to covid so you could argue covid did not help your grades), she just has to retake them both and she even failed maths again but is still in sixth form. I also was doing A-Level biology and changed to A-Level RS even though the requirements for RS would be to have passed GCSE RS which I had not even taken. I think if your school offers a sixth form and you speak to them about it you should be ok. You can always retake maths and english and hopefully talk to your teachers and maybe ask them if they could help you or provide you with any information/help to boost your grades. I'd assume with covid they will be more generous with grading also 100% email/talk to your teachers because it will show them that you really care and that you are willing to do anything (within reason) to make sure you pass. It's not too late good luck !!

i mean its a bit late (not trying to be harsh) .... mocks are normally in march so youve got like 1 week i guess to 'prove yourself'

how are your target grades all 3's ? what about class tests? have you improved in them?

I think with covid pretty much everywhere will lower their grade requirements for sixth form. Are you in school right now or online learning because if you are doing online I would argue you're at an advantage. If you have assignments online then do those to the best of your abilities and do them all. If not maybe email your teachers asking for work that you could complete to show your abilities. And obviously revision will be helpful if your doing mocks, but are schools doing mocks with covid or are they online?
Overall I would just really recommend contacting your teachers instead of letting everything build up. My sisters in a similar position as you and my dad's gf and her went through and emailed every teacher explaining the situation and it's really helped her. Good luck !!
