    Hello ^_^, I want to change from Dual Science to Triple Science for my GCSEs.
    Although the problem is, we've just took the P1a, C1a and B1a exams, (2nd March), I asked my teacher whether it was possible to change, but she said although it was a good idea, she doesn't know whether the exams are coded differently for Triple Science students.

    The Dual Science students and Triple Science take exactly the same exams in Year 10, and the Triple take the extra exams in Year 11. I am halfway through Year 10, so I wouldn't have to do any catch up work.

    Do you know anyone that has changed after already taking one exam?


    The reason I want to change, if you're wondering, is because I took OCR IT, which was a stupid, stupid idea. And I'd replace the additional IT lessons on my timetable for Science. In OCR IT, you can only get a "Distinction", the equivalent of an A grade, but you can't get an A*, unlike in the Sciences, so it would seem a better idea to do Triple instead as I'm able to get an A*, and I find IT really dull and uninteresting unlike Science.

    it should be fine. i changed from spanish to triple science a year into the course, and had no problems.

    as long as you're prepared to catch up with the triple science class, it should be okay, as they share the same exams, except triple has three extra exams after the usual 9.

    my teachers were very reluctant about me moving, perhaps thats why your teacher said that? i had to go to my head of year, heads of the departments and my headteacher before they agreed to let me move. at the end of the day if you think its best for you, try your best to move.
