What is the difference between GCSE and Additional science ?Watch
Additional is 'double'. Extension is 'triple'. They are both GCSE, but with Additional you gain two grades whereas in Extension you gain three grades for each science respectively.
I was getting high As and A*s in GCSE, and will probably just about scrape a B in Additional :/
Hi in year 10 we did AQA GCSE science and in year 11 we have done AQA additional science what is the difference and is additional science considered more valuable than the Normal GCSE
Additional science is basically a step-up in difficulty from core and yeah i I found it a bit more tricky - it's not way way harder, just a bit
Apparently, so my teacher said, additional science is the one that is looked at more because it's harder - it's the one that they'll most look at if you wanna take a science at A - level.
Hope that helps
Why do you need to know? Additional Science GCSE is no longer available as a qualification so it may not be relevant to you.
Because I intend to apply for Medicine in Portugal and in the national legislation for equivalences, the GCSE is still awarded. So I need UK legislation where it says it's the same.
