    On my GCSE certificates, it says I got a C for science D for additional science and a CC for applied science.

    What I want to know it, what is the difference between additional science and science? and also, which one of the 2 is concidered better?

    Thanks

    Well all I know is that with additional science, you can study the sciences at A-level (well, provided you've got a B or above)

    Edit - You have grades for both applied and additional science?

    I thought you could only pick one or the other? :curious:

    science is core science, usually, though not always, done in year ten. additional science is a second gcse which is more science, usually done in year 11. these two are considered better than applied science, but applied science isn't that bad!

    So on ucas when the requirements say C in science, do they mean additional science or just sceince?

    errr... i wouldn't know off hand. I would guess that c in core science is ok, but you're probably best to check with someone who would know better, I haven't reached the joys of ucas yet!

    I'm almost certain that most Sixth Form don't accept students into Science subjects without Additional - regardless whether you get A* in Core.

    The C in Science should be Core.

    One is ''sceince'' and the other is ''science''.

    From what i know additional science is part of the double award science so you get 2 grades at the end of year 11. So in my school we did the double award science where we did core science in Year 10 and Additional science in Year 11.

    Apparently separate sciences is better than all the others becasue you learn much more in each science subject which will help especially at A-Level.
