I thought I was going to do well on maths like maybe a 7 or 8 but I got post-covid brain fog and couldn't concentrate and had really bad time management during exams and subsequently left pages out and I don't think I did as well as I thought I would have. I'm sure I got at least a 6 but I want to do maths at A-Level because I am really interested in the subject and think I can do well in it and the entry requirement is a 7 or above for GCSE. Can I still do it even if I don't get a 7?

In my school you needed a 6 and preferably a 7 to do A level maths because it is so difficult. I know people that got 8’s at GCSE and came out with C’s for A-Level. My school did a test at the start of the first A Level year and if you didn’t pass it you couldn’t take maths

You will need to talk to the head of maths and explain your result if it turns out you only achieved a 6. They might let you take an assessment to decide whether to give you a second chance and take you, in which case do some revision of key topics before you go back to school.

This is entirely up to your school / college.
No-one here will know the answer.
