What should I do now?
The best advice to give you now is that you should think about what you
would like to study at University and maybe where you would like to
study.
Then have a look at the websites and find out what the entry
requirements are, especially what the desired or recommended subject
options are.
Mathematics is a very demanding course, if you are thinking about
Maths or Further Maths, talk to your teachers and ask them if you might
be suitable.
