    If you're not massively bothered, then there's really no point in doing it and causing unnecessary work for yourself. It doesn't really give any major advantage, even for those who want to go into science. I'm going into my third year of Biological Sciences with a First and I only did double (I chose against triple)

    I suppose it's only really one more unit and it's not a huge difference..

    Thank you

    I am definitely happy that I done triple. I know that if I hadn't, this year my physics grade would have brought me down (I haven't got my results yet).
    Saying that, there are 7 topics within each of mine, and so that was 21 topcs to learn, as well as the 3 extra exams.
    I didn't find it too stressful, only physics. It depends on not just your memory, but how well you're able to apply basic concepts!!
    I'm doing Chemistry and biology at 6th form, so thats why I found doing them separately was a lot better, as I feel more confident in my results!!

    That's crazy! At least your doing biology and chemistry A-Levels now. Good Luck
    Thank you!
