What grades do I need to do A Levels?
Many places require a B at GCSE, but not all.
It’s impossible to say what will happen – it depends upon the admissions tutor for your A Level college of sixth form.
However, most A Level courses require a B at GCSE at least, to ensure you will fair well in the transition from GCSE to A Level.
If you feel you were hard done by, it’s probably worth just telling your tutor this and promise to do really well! There are people that missed their offer and got in anyway to do their chosen A Levels.
Most places won’t take you on to do an A Level if you get anything less than a D, as it shows you don’t really have a grasp of that subject. They do this to avoid disappointment and drop outs.
Stop worrying about not getting your grades, and start working on getting them.
If you’ve got severe problems make sure you contact your school well in advance to let them know – they’re usually lenient, most of the time!
