I'd also give you some really good advice that I wasn't given:

I would retake the Module 123's for all the sciences. Once you've done another year studying, retaking the 123's are ****ing hilariously easy and you will just be throwing away marks if you don't. Sadly, I only retook my Physics and none of the other sciences, and the Physics was so easy..

P123 before retake: 34/50 B
P123 after retake: 50/50 A*

I wish I retook my others.

You don't get penalized for retaking the individual units. It's your choice, anyway.

I did triple sciences and ended up with 3 GCSE grades but it was like this:

Core Science
Additional Science
Biology (learnt an extra 2 units including the stuff from Core & Additional in the Biology sections on them)

I assume my school did it differently, heck, I technically did quadruple because I took Physics as well, which I never learnt the two extra units for, but still got 80% in that one exam, Random answers FTW!

Retaking can really help to push up your grades.

However, you don't need to retake to get A*. I got a B in P1P2P3 in year 10, and ended up with an A* overall because I got A* in all the other exams.

I took OCR gateway, and you get 3 seperate ones for each subject.

Biology
Chemistry
Physics

Retake, i wish i did, i only got A's because my year 10 marks we're very low A's then year 11 exams I got all A*'s (biology 99/100) but still only came out with A's, and am now really regretting it now because of not having one A* to show.
