Im currently nearing the end of yr 10 and i know its a long way off yet but i want to take chemistry as a level. But im only on grade 4/5 sometimes 6. Do i need to get a higher grade to manage it at a level?

You need a grade 7 at least. The difference may look small, but it's a whole level of understanding.

If you struggle at GCSE you will struggle at a level

what kind of grades do you get in the other sciences? Also try using the CGP revision guide - it's actually really helpful for GCSE chemistry I think

probably a 6/7 as a minimum, but you have plenty of time. and yess the CGP revision guide was really helpful, but also practice questions will really help! you can find past papers on your exam board's website as well as topic-specific ones on websites like physics and maths tutor. best of luck!!!

For my school, the entry requirements were:
For double science: two 7s
Triple: 7 in chemistry, 6 in Biology, 6 in Physics
A 7 in maths.

Speaking as someone who averaged a 5/6 most of GCSE, got a 7 overall, and has just finished A Level Chemistry with a likely B grade, it’s certainly possible as long as you put the effort in and practice
